Package : nss Version : 3.12.8-1+squeeze9 CVE ID : CVE-2014-1568 Antoine 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. This update fixes this issue for the NSS libraries. Note that iceweasel, which is also affected by CVE-2014-1568, however has reached end-of-life in Squeeze(-LTS) and thus has not been fixed.
