Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : nss (MDVSA-2014:012)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 72056


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


A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in Mozilla NSS :

The ssl_Do1stHandshake function in sslsecur.c in libssl in Mozilla Network Security Services (NSS) before 3.15.4, when the TLS False Start feature is enabled, allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof SSL servers by using an arbitrary X.509 certificate during certain handshake traffic (CVE-2013-1740).

The updated packages have been upgraded to the 3.15.4 version which is not vulnerable to this issue.


Update the affected packages.
