QSN-4215-1: nss vulnerability

December 9, 2019


NSS could be made to crash if it received a specially crafted certificate.


It was discovered that NSS incorrectly handled certain certificates. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a denial of service.



A general update will usually fix all issues, but to make sure, you can check your current version with:

$ dpkg -l libnss3

If the current version you have is before 2:3.28.4-0ubuntu0.16.04.9, run the following:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install libnss3
