Synopsis :

Description :

According to the version of the nss nss-util packages installed, the
EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following
vulnerability :

- An out-of-bounds write flaw was found in the way NSS

crafted certificate which, when parsed by NSS, could
cause it to crash or execute arbitrary code, using the
permissions of the user running an application compiled
against the NSS library. (CVE-2017-5461)
