SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionHanno Bock discovered that NSS incorrectly handled certain division functions, possibly leading to cryptographic weaknesses.
This update also refreshes the NSS package to version 3.21 which includes the latest CA certificate bundle, and removes the SPI CA.
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 package.
