 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in Mozilla NSS:
 
 The ssl_Do1stHandshake function in sslsecur.c in libssl in Mozilla
 Network Security Services (NSS) before 3.15.4, when the TLS False
 Start feature is enabled, allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof
 SSL servers by using an arbitrary X.509 certificate during certain
 handshake traffic (CVE-2013-1740).
 
 The updated packages have been upgraded to the 3.15.4 version which
 is not vulnerable to this issue.
