FreeBSD : NSS -- RSA Signature Forgery (48108fb0-751c-4cbb-8f33-09239ead4b55)

high Nessus Plugin ID 77883
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.

Description

The Mozilla Project reports :

Antoine Delignat-Lavaud discovered that NSS is vulnerable to a variant of a signature forgery attack previously published by Daniel Bleichenbacher. This is due to lenient parsing of ASN.1 values involved in a signature and could lead to the forging of RSA certificates.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
