                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Important: nss security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2013:1841-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2013-1841.html

CVE Names:         CVE-2013-5605 
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated nss packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 Long Life, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.6 and
5.9 Extended Update Support.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the
CVE link in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux EUS (v. 5.6 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux EUS (v. 5.9 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Long Life (v. 5.3 server) - i386, ia64, x86_64

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)
