USN-927-5: nspr update
29 June 2010
This update is for use with the new NSS provided in USN-927-4.
- nspr - NetScape Portable Runtime Library
USN-927-4 fixed vulnerabilities in NSS. This update provides the NSPR
needed to use the new NSS.
Original advisory details:
Marsh Ray and Steve Dispensa discovered a flaw in the TLS and SSLv3
protocols. If an attacker could perform a machine-in-the-middle attack at the
start of a TLS connection, the attacker could inject arbitrary content at
the beginning of the user's session. This update adds support for the new
new renegotiation extension and will use it when the server supports it.
