    Package        : nss
    CVE ID         : CVE-2017-7805
    
    Martin Thomson discovered that nss, the Mozilla Network Security Service
    library, is prone to a use-after-free vulnerability in the TLS 1.2
    implementation when handshake hashes are generated. A remote attacker
    can take advantage of this flaw to cause an application using the nss
    library to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or potentially to
    execute arbitrary code.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed
    in version 2:3.26-1+debu8u3.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:3.26.2-1.1+deb9u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed
    in version 2:3.33-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:3.33-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your nss packages.
