    Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2030-1

    nss vulnerabilities
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 13.10
    - Ubuntu 13.04
    - Ubuntu 12.10
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in NSS.
    
    Software Description:
    - nss: Network Security Service library
    
    Details:
    
    Multiple security issues were discovered in NSS. If a user were tricked
    into connecting to a malicious server, an attacker could possibly exploit
    these to cause a denial of service via application crash, potentially
    execute arbitrary code, or lead to information disclosure.
    
    This update also adds TLS v1.2 support to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, Ubuntu 12.04
    LTS, Ubuntu 12.10, and Ubuntu 13.04.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 13.10:
      libnss3                         2:3.15.3-0ubuntu0.13.10.1
    
    Ubuntu 13.04:
      libnss3                         2:3.15.3-0ubuntu0.13.04.1
    
    Ubuntu 12.10:
      libnss3                         3.15.3-0ubuntu0.12.10.1
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      libnss3                         3.15.3-0ubuntu0.12.04.1
    
    Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
      libnss3-1d                      3.15.3-0ubuntu0.10.04.1
    
    This update uses a new upstream release, which includes additional bug
    fixes. After a standard system update you need to restart any applications
    that use NSS, such as Evolution and Chromium, to make all the necessary
    changes.
