Debian DSA-3033-1 : nss - security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 77880
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionAntoine Delignat-Lavaud from Inria discovered an issue in the way NSS (the Mozilla Network Security Service library) was parsing ASN.1 data used in signatures, making it vulnerable to a signature forgery attack.
An attacker could craft ASN.1 data to forge RSA certificates with a valid certification chain to a trusted CA.
SolutionUpgrade the nss packages.
For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 2:3.14.5-1+deb7u2.
