Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in Mozilla NSS :

Antoine Delignat-Lavaud, security researcher at Inria Paris in team
Prosecco, reported an issue in Network Security Services (NSS)
libraries affecting all versions. He 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 (CVE-2014-1568).

The updated NSPR packages have been upgraded to the latest 4.10.7
version.

The updated NSS packages have been upgraded to the latest 3.17.1
version which is not vulnerable to this issue.

Additionally the rootcerts package has also been updated to the latest
version as of 2014-08-05.
