Description :

The Mozilla Project reports :

Antoine Delignat-Lavaud discovered that NSS is vulnerable to a variant
of a signature forgery attack previously published by Daniel
Bleichenbacher. This is due to lenient parsing of ASN.1 values
involved in a signature and could lead to the forging of RSA
certificates.
