Updated nss packages fix CVE-2016-1950Publication date: 16 Mar 2016
Affected Mageia releases : 5
Updated rootcerts and nss packages fix security vulnerability: A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way NSS parsed certain ASN.1 structures. An attacker could use this flaw to create a specially crafted certificate which, when parsed by NSS, could cause it to crash, or execute arbitrary code, using the permissions of the user running an application compiled against the NSS library (CVE-2016-1950). This issue was supposed to have been fixed in MGASA-2016-0105, but Mozilla did not include the fix until the following nss releases.
