Updated nss, nss-util, and nspr packages that fix one security issue,
several bugs, and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
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.

Network Security Services (NSS) is a set of libraries designed to support
the cross-platform development of security-enabled client and server
applications. Netscape Portable Runtime (NSPR) provides platform
independence for non-GUI operating system facilities.

A flaw was found in the way the ASN.1 (Abstract Syntax Notation One)
decoder in NSS handled zero length items. This flaw could cause the decoder
to incorrectly skip or replace certain items with a default value, or could
cause an application to crash if, for example, it received a
specially-crafted OCSP (Online Certificate Status Protocol) response.

The nspr package has been upgraded to upstream version 4.9.1, which
provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version.

The nss-util package has been upgraded to upstream version 3.13.5, which
provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version.

The nss package has been upgraded to upstream version 3.13.5, which
provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version.

All NSS, NSPR, and nss-util users are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which correct these issues and add these enhancements. After
installing this update, applications using NSS, NSPR, or nss-util must be
restarted for this update to take effect.
