From: Lars Magne Ingebrigtsen
Subject: bug#23027: 25.1.50; Emacs refuses to talk to eternal-september because they now use an MD5 certificate, apparently
Date: Sun, 24 Apr 2016 16:14:52 +0200
User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/25.1.50 (gnu/linux)

address@hidden ~/src/emacs/trunk]$ gnutls-cli -p nntps 
news.eternal-september.org
Resolving 'news.eternal-september.org'...
Connecting to '213.239.209.88:563'...
*** Fatal error: The signature algorithm is not supported.
*** Handshake has failed
GnuTLS error: The signature algorithm is not supported.

That's not very helpful.

However, on a newer machine it says:

- Certificate[1] info:
 - subject `O=Root CA,OU=http://www.cacert.org,CN=CA Cert Signing 
Authority,address@hidden', issuer `O=Root CA,OU=http://www.cacert.org,CN=CA 
Cert Signing Authority,address@hidden', RSA key 4096 bits, signed using RSA-MD5 
(broken!), activated `2003-03-30 12:29:49 UTC', expires `2033-03-29 12:29:49 
UTC', SHA-1 fingerprint `135cec36f49cb8e93b1ab270cd80884676ce8f33'

So there's the MD5.

So it like fails on several levels: On older machines, the GnuTLS
library is too old, and on newer machines, it refuses the connection
because of the MD5...
