Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-1091-01 - Network Security Services is a set of libraries designed to support the cross-platform development of security-enabled client and server applications. Netscape Portable Runtime provides platform independence for non-GUI operating system facilities. A flaw was found in the way the ASN.1 decoder in NSS handled zero length items. This flaw could cause the decoder to incorrectly skip or replace certain items with a default value, or could cause an application to crash if, for example, it received a specially-crafted OCSP response.

3. Description:

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 the ASN.1 (Abstract Syntax Notation One)
decoder in NSS handled zero length items. This flaw could cause the decoder
to incorrectly skip or replace certain items with a default value, or could
cause an application to crash if, for example, it received a
specially-crafted OCSP (Online Certificate Status Protocol) response.
(CVE-2012-0441)

The nspr package has been upgraded to upstream version 4.9.1, which
provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version.
(BZ#833762)

The nss-util package has been upgraded to upstream version 3.13.5, which
provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version.
(BZ#833763)

The nss package has been upgraded to upstream version 3.13.5, which
provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version.
(BZ#834100)

All NSS, NSPR, and nss-util users are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which correct these issues and add these enhancements. After
installing this update, applications using NSS, NSPR, or nss-util must be
restarted for this update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/articles/11258
