Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 12.04 LTS / 12.10 / 13.04 / 13.10 : nss vulnerabilities (USN-2030-1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 70962
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionMultiple security issues were discovered in NSS. If a user were tricked into connecting to a malicious server, an attacker could possibly exploit these to cause a denial of service via application crash, potentially execute arbitrary code, or lead to information disclosure.
This update also adds TLS v1.2 support to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, Ubuntu 12.10, and Ubuntu 13.04.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected libnss3 and / or libnss3-1d packages.
