Description

Issue Overview:

A flaw was found in the way NSS handled invalid handshake packets. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause a TLS/SSL client using NSS to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2013-5605 __)

It was found that the fix for CVE-2013-1620 __ introduced a regression causing NSS to read uninitialized data when a decryption failure occurred. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause a TLS/SSL server using NSS to crash. (CVE-2013-1739 __)

An integer overflow flaw was discovered in both NSS and NSPR's implementation of certification parsing on 64-bit systems. A remote attacker could use these flaws to cause an application using NSS or NSPR to crash. (CVE-2013-1741 __, CVE-2013-5607 __)

It was discovered that NSS did not reject certificates with incompatible key usage constraints when validating them while the verifyLog feature was enabled. An application using the NSS certificate validation API could accept an invalid certificate. (CVE-2013-5606 __)
