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)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
