Description

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

the nss library to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version
2:3.26-1+debu7u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your nss packages.

block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted
to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without
introducing additional issues."
