    Package        : nss
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-1568
    
    Antoine Delignat-Lavaud from Inria discovered an issue in the way NSS
    (the Mozilla Network Security Service library) 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.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:3.14.5-1+deb7u2.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:3.17.1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:3.17.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your nss packages.
