There are reports that many Linux systems are compromised by a recent critical GnuTLS issue. Is Tails affected by this?

The issue was fixed in Tails 1.0.1.


Referring to a previous answer to a similar question, Tor uses the OpenSSL library not use GnuTLS for encryption so it is not affected by this vulnerability.
