    - Ubuntu 14.04 ESM
    - Ubuntu 12.04 ESM
    
    Summary:
    
    NSS could be made to expose sensitive information.
    
    Software Description:

    Details:
    
    USN-4417-1 fixed a vulnerability in NSS. This update provides
    the corresponding update for Ubuntu 12.04 ESM and Ubuntu 14.04 ESM.
    
    Original advisory details:
    
     Cesar Pereida, Billy Bob Brumley, Yuval Yarom, and Nicola Tuveri discovered
     that NSS incorrectly handled RSA key generation. A local attacker could
     possibly use this issue to perform a timing attack and recover RSA keys.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 ESM:
      libnss3                         2:3.28.4-0ubuntu0.14.04.5+esm6
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 ESM:
      libnss3                         2:3.28.4-0ubuntu0.12.04.9
    
    After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
    all the necessary changes.
