CVE ID         : CVE-2020-25648 CVE-2023-4421

Multiple vulnerabilities were found in nss, a set of libraries designed
to support cross-platform development of security-enabled client and
server applications.

CVE-2020-25648

    A flaw was discovered in how NSS handles CipherChangeSpec messages
    in TLS 1.3.  It could allow an attacker to send multiple CCS
    messages to servers compiled against NSS, causing denial-of-service.

CVE-2023-4421

    A fuzzing project discovered vulnerabilities to Bleichenbacher
    timing attacks in NSS's facilities for RSA cryptography.

For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version
