[slackware-security] mozilla-nss (SSA:2014-086-04)

New mozilla-nss packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, and -current to
fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/mozilla-nss-3.16-i486-1_slack14.1.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes a security issue:
The cert_TestHostName function in lib/certdb/certdb.c in the
certificate-checking implementation in Mozilla Network Security Services
(NSS) before 3.16 accepts a wildcard character that is embedded in an
internationalized domain name's U-label, which might allow man-in-the-middle
attackers to spoof SSL servers via a crafted certificate.
For more information, see:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-1492
(* Security fix *)
