 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2014:066
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : nss
 Date    : March 20, 2014
 Affected: Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been found and corrected in mozilla NSS:
 
 In a wildcard certificate, the wildcard character should not be
 embedded within the U-label of an internationalized domain name. See
 the last bullet point in RFC 6125, Section 7.2 (CVE-2014-1492).
 
 The updated packages have been upgraded to the latest NSPR (4.10.4)
 and NSS (3.16) versions which is not vulnerable to this issue.
 
 Additionally the rootcerts package has also been updated to version
 1.97, which adds, removes, and distrusts several certificates.
