Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Mozilla NSS was updated to version 3.16.5 to fix a RSA certificate
forgery issue.

- 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. (MFSA
2014-73 / CVE-2014-1568)

The Advanced Threat Research team at Intel Security also independently
discovered and reported this issue.
