Subject:  Security ERRATA Critical: nss and nspr on SL6.x i386/x86_64
Date:  Tue, 22 Jul 2014 21:59:16 +0000
Message-ID:  <20140722215916.30443.68829@slpackages.fnal.gov>

Synopsis: Critical: nss and nspr security, bug fix, and enhancement update Advisory ID: SLSA-2014:0917-1 Issue Date: 2014-07-22 CVE Numbers: CVE-2013-1740 CVE-2014-1490 CVE-2014-1491 CVE-2014-1492 CVE-2014-1545 CVE-2014-1544 -- A race condition was found in the way NSS verified certain certificates. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash an application using NSS or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running that application. (CVE-2014-1544) A flaw was found in the way TLS False Start was implemented in NSS. An attacker could use this flaw to potentially return unencrypted information from the server. (CVE-2013-1740) A race condition was found in the way NSS implemented session ticket handling as specified by RFC 5077. An attacker could use this flaw to crash an application using NSS or, in rare cases, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running that application. (CVE-2014-1490) It was found that NSS accepted weak Diffie-Hellman Key exchange (DHKE) parameters. This could possibly lead to weak encryption being used in communication between the client and the server. (CVE-2014-1491) An out-of-bounds write flaw was found in NSPR. A remote attacker could potentially use this flaw to crash an application using NSPR or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running that application. This NSPR flaw was not exposed to web content in any shipped version of Firefox. (CVE-2014-1545) It was found that the implementation of Internationalizing Domain Names in Applications (IDNA) hostname matching in NSS did not follow the RFC 6125 recommendations. This could lead to certain invalid certificates with international characters to be accepted as valid. (CVE-2014-1492) In addition, the nss package has been upgraded to upstream version 3.16.1, and the nspr package has been upgraded to upstream version 4.10.6. These updated packages provide a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous versions. After installing this update, applications using NSS or NSPR must be restarted for this update to take effect. -- SL6 x86_64 nspr-4.10.6-1.el6_5.i686.rpm nspr-4.10.6-1.el6_5.x86_64.rpm nspr-debuginfo-4.10.6-1.el6_5.i686.rpm nspr-debuginfo-4.10.6-1.el6_5.x86_64.rpm nss-3.16.1-4.el6_5.i686.rpm nss-3.16.1-4.el6_5.x86_64.rpm nss-debuginfo-3.16.1-4.el6_5.i686.rpm nss-debuginfo-3.16.1-4.el6_5.x86_64.rpm nss-sysinit-3.16.1-4.el6_5.x86_64.rpm nss-tools-3.16.1-4.el6_5.x86_64.rpm nss-util-3.16.1-1.el6_5.i686.rpm nss-util-3.16.1-1.el6_5.x86_64.rpm nss-util-debuginfo-3.16.1-1.el6_5.i686.rpm nss-util-debuginfo-3.16.1-1.el6_5.x86_64.rpm nspr-devel-4.10.6-1.el6_5.i686.rpm nspr-devel-4.10.6-1.el6_5.x86_64.rpm nss-devel-3.16.1-4.el6_5.i686.rpm nss-devel-3.16.1-4.el6_5.x86_64.rpm nss-pkcs11-devel-3.16.1-4.el6_5.i686.rpm nss-pkcs11-devel-3.16.1-4.el6_5.x86_64.rpm nss-util-devel-3.16.1-1.el6_5.i686.rpm nss-util-devel-3.16.1-1.el6_5.x86_64.rpm i386 nspr-4.10.6-1.el6_5.i686.rpm nspr-debuginfo-4.10.6-1.el6_5.i686.rpm nss-3.16.1-4.el6_5.i686.rpm nss-debuginfo-3.16.1-4.el6_5.i686.rpm nss-sysinit-3.16.1-4.el6_5.i686.rpm nss-tools-3.16.1-4.el6_5.i686.rpm nss-util-3.16.1-1.el6_5.i686.rpm nss-util-debuginfo-3.16.1-1.el6_5.i686.rpm nspr-devel-4.10.6-1.el6_5.i686.rpm nss-devel-3.16.1-4.el6_5.i686.rpm nss-pkcs11-devel-3.16.1-4.el6_5.i686.rpm nss-util-devel-3.16.1-1.el6_5.i686.rpm - Scientific Linux Development Team
