Debian Security Advisory DSA-1874-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Moritz Muehlenhoff
August 26, 2009 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : nss
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2009-2404 CVE-2009-2408 CVE-2009-2409

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Network Security
Service libraries. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:

CVE-2009-2404

Moxie Marlinspike discovered that a buffer overflow in the regular
expression parser could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2009-2408

Dan Kaminsky discovered that NULL characters in certificate
names could lead to man-in-the-middle attacks by tricking the user
into accepting a rogue certificate.

CVE-2009-2409

Certificates with MD2 hash signatures are no longer accepted
since they're no longer considered cryptograhically secure.


The old stable distribution (etch) doesn't contain nss.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 3.12.3.1-0lenny1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 3.12.3.1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your nss packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.


Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 alias lenny
- --------------------------------

Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, armel, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.
