    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in nss, the Mozilla Network
    Security Service library:
    
    CVE-2013-1741
    
        Runaway memset in certificate parsing on 64-bit computers leading to
        a crash by attempting to write 4Gb of nulls.
    
    CVE-2013-5606
    
        Certificate validation with the verifylog mode did not return
        validation errors, but instead expected applications to determine
        the status by looking at the log.
    
    CVE-2014-1491
    
        Ticket handling protection mechanisms bypass due to the lack of
        restriction of public values in Diffie-Hellman key exchanges.
    
    CVE-2014-1492
    
        Incorrect IDNA domain name matching for wildcard certificates could
        allow specially-crafted invalid certificates to be considered as
        valid.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2:3.14.5-1+deb7u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), and the unstable distribution (sid),
    these problems have been fixed in version 2:3.16-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your nss packages.
