[SECURITY] [DLA 1138-1] nss security update

Package        : nss
Version        : 2:3.26-1+debu7u5
CVE ID         : CVE-2017-7805

Martin Thomson discovered that nss, the Mozilla Network Security Service
library, is prone to a use-after-free vulnerability in the TLS 1.2
implementation when handshake hashes are generated. A remote attacker
can take advantage of this flaw to cause an application using the nss
library to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or potentially to
execute arbitrary code.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your nss packages.
