Red Hat Security Advisory 2013-1840-01 - Network Security Services is a set of libraries designed to support the cross-platform development of security-enabled client and server applications. A flaw was found in the way NSS handled invalid handshake packets. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause a TLS/SSL client using NSS to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application. All NSS users should 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 the changes to take effect.

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.

A flaw was found in the way NSS handled invalid handshake packets. A remote
attacker could use this flaw to cause a TLS/SSL client using NSS to crash
or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running the application. (CVE-2013-5605)

All NSS users should 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 the changes 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/site/articles/11258

5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

1030807 - CVE-2013-5605 nss: Null_Cipher() does not respect maxOutputLen (MFSA 2013-103)
