Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'nss'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
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 flaw was found in the way NSS parsed ASN.1 (Abstract Syntax Notation One)
input from certain RSA signatures. A remote attacker could use this flaw to
forge RSA certificates by providing a specially crafted signature to an
application using NSS. (CVE-2014-1568)

Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting this issue.
Upstream acknowledges Antoine Delignat-Lavaud and Intel Product Security
Incident Response Team 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.

Affected Software/OS:
nss on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 7),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Solution:
Please Install the Updated Packages.
