Description

Updated nss-softokn packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Moderate security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section.

Network Security Services (NSS) is a set of libraries designed to support cross-platform development of security-enabled client and server applications.

A flaw was found in the way NSS verified certain ECDSA (Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm) signatures. Under certain conditions, an attacker could use this flaw to conduct signature forgery attacks. (CVE-2015-2730)

Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting this issue. Upstream acknowledges Watson Ladd as the original reporter of this issue.

All nss-softokn users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
