Description

Antoine Delignat-Lavaud from Inria discovered an issue in the way NSS (the Mozilla Network Security Service library, embedded in Wheezy's Icedove), 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.
