Synopsis :

The remote Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is affected by a
signature forgery vulnerability.

Description :

to 31.1.1. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in the Network
Security Services (NSS) library, which is due to lenient parsing of
ASN.1 values involved in a signature and can lead to the forgery of
RSA signatures, such as SSL certificates.
