25 Updated nspr and nss packages fix security vulnerabilities:
26
27 Potentially exploitable buffer overflow in NSS before 3.15.3 that allows
28 remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified
29 other impact via invalid handshake packets (CVE-2013-5605).
30
31 The CERT_VerifyCert function in lib/certhigh/certvfy.c in NSS before 3.15.3
32 provides an unexpected return value for an incompatible key-usage certificate
33 when the CERTVerifyLog argument is valid, which might allow remote attackers
34 to bypass intended access restrictions via a crafted certificate
35 (CVE-2013-5606).
36
37 Runaway memset due to an integer truncation in certificate parsing on 64-bit
38 computers in NSS before 3.15.3 leading to a crash by attempting to write 4Gb
39 of nulls (CVE-2013-1741).
40
41 Integer overflow in NSPR before 4.10.2 due to unsigned integer wrapping in
42 PL_ArenaAllocate (CVE-2013-5607).
43
44 NSS lowered the priority of RC4 in cipher suite advertisement so that more
45 secure ciphers instead of RC4 are likely to be chosen by the server, because
46 of plaintext recovery attacks possible with RC4 (CVE-2013-2566).
47
48 This also updates to the latest root certificate data from Mozilla.
49
50 Additionally, The latest Firefox ESR version, which fixes an issue with
51 translated strings not being used in some cases, is also being provided.
