Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake Security issues in nss prior to 3.12.3 could lead to a man-in-the-middle attack via a spoofed X.509 certificate (CVE-2009-2408) and md2 algorithm flaws (CVE-2009-2409), and also cause a denial-of-service and possible code execution via a long domain name in X.509 certificate (CVE-2009-2404). This update provides the latest versions of NSS and NSPR libraries which are not vulnerable to those attacks. Update: This update also provides fixed packages for Mandriva Linux 2008.1 and fixes mozilla-thunderbird error messages.
