Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 12.04 LTS / 14.04 LTS : nss vulnerability (USN-2361-1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 77853
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionAntoine Delignat-Lavaud and others discovered that NSS incorrectly handled parsing ASN.1 values. An attacker could use this issue to forge RSA certificates.
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.
