USN-810-1: NSS vulnerabilities
Posted on: 08/05/2009 12:25 AM

A new NSS vulnerabilities update is available for Ubuntu Linux. Here the announcement:

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-810-1 August 04, 2009
nss vulnerabilities
CVE-2009-2404, CVE-2009-2408, CVE-2009-2409
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 8.10
Ubuntu 9.04

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

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

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
libnss3-1d 3.12.3.1-0ubuntu0.8.04.1

Ubuntu 8.10:
libnss3-1d 3.12.3.1-0ubuntu0.8.10.1

Ubuntu 9.04:
libnss3-1d 3.12.3.1-0ubuntu0.9.04.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart an applications that
use NSS, such as Firefox, to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Moxie Marlinspike discovered that NSS did not properly handle regular
expressions in certificate names. A remote attacker could create a
specially crafted certificate to cause a denial of service (via application
crash) or execute arbitrary code as the user invoking the program.
(CVE-2009-2404)

Moxie Marlinspike and Dan Kaminsky independently discovered that NSS did
not properly handle certificates with NULL characters in the certificate
name. An attacker could exploit this to perform a man in the middle attack
to view sensitive information or alter encrypted communications.
(CVE-2009-2408)

Dan Kaminsky discovered NSS would still accept certificates with MD2 hash
signatures. As a result, an attacker could potentially create a malicious
trusted certificate to impersonate another site. (CVE-2009-2409)
