Description

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in NSS, the cryptography library developed by the Mozilla project.

CVE-2015-4000 David Adrian et al. reported that it may be feasible to attack Diffie-Hellman-based cipher suites in certain circumstances, compromising the confidentiality and integrity of data encrypted with Transport Layer Security (TLS).

CVE-2015-7181 CVE-2015-7182 CVE-2016-1950 Tyson Smith, David Keeler, and Francis Gabriel discovered heap-based buffer overflows in the ASN.1 DER parser, potentially leading to arbitrary code execution.

CVE-2015-7575 Karthikeyan Bhargavan discovered that TLS client implementation accepted MD5-based signatures for TLS 1.2 connections with forward secrecy, weakening the intended security strength of TLS connections.

CVE-2016-1938 Hanno Boeck discovered that NSS miscomputed the result of integer division for certain inputs. This could weaken the cryptographic protections provided by NSS. However, NSS implements RSA-CRT leak hardening, so RSA private keys are not directly disclosed by this issue.

CVE-2016-1978 Eric Rescorla discovered a use-after-free vulnerability in the implementation of ECDH-based TLS handshakes, with unknown consequences.

CVE-2016-1979 Tim Taubert discovered a use-after-free vulnerability in ASN.1 DER processing, with application-specific impact.

CVE-2016-2834 Tyson Smith and Jed Davis discovered unspecified memory-safety bugs in NSS.

In addition, the NSS library did not ignore environment variables in processes which underwent a SUID/SGID/AT_SECURE transition at process start. In certain system configurations, this allowed local users to escalate their privileges.

This update contains further correctness and stability fixes without immediate security impact.
