    1. Summary:
    
    Updated nss packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red
    Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Extended Life Cycle Support.
    
    Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Critical 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.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (v. 4 ELS) - i386, ia64, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES (v. 4 ELS) - i386, x86_64
    
    3. Description:
    
    Network Security Services (NSS) is a set of libraries designed to support
    the cross-platform development of security-enabled client and server
    applications. Netscape Portable Runtime (NSPR) provides platform
    independence for non-GUI operating system facilities.
    
    A race condition was found in the way NSS verified certain certificates.
    A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash an application using NSS or,
    possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
    that application. (CVE-2014-1544)
    
    Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting this issue.
    Upstream acknowledges Tyson Smith and Jesse Schwartzentruber as the
    original reporters.
    
    All NSS users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
    contain a backported patch to correct this issue. After installing this
    update, applications using NSS must be restarted for this update to take
    effect.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
    relevant to your system have been applied.
    
    This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the
    Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
    https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258
