Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in NSS.

Software Description:

Details:

Tavis Ormandy discovered that NSS incorrectly handled an empty pkcs7
sequence. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause NSS to
crash, resulting in a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu
18.04 LTS, Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 21.10. (CVE-2022-22747)

(CVE-2022-34480)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:
  libnss3                         2:3.68.2-0ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 21.10:
  libnss3                         2:3.68-1ubuntu1.2

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
  libnss3                         2:3.49.1-1ubuntu1.8

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
  libnss3                         2:3.35-2ubuntu2.15

After a standard system update you need to restart any applications that
use NSS to make all the necessary changes.
