Title: Mozilla Network Security Service (NSS): Information disclosure (GLSA 202007-49)
Exploitable: local, remote
NSS has an information disclosure vulnerability when handling DSA
The Mozilla Network Security Service (NSS) is a library implementing
security features like SSL v.2/v.3, TLS, PKCS #5, PKCS #7, PKCS #11, PKCS
#12, S/MIME and X.509 certificates.
Vulnerable: < 3.52.1
Unaffected: >= 3.52.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
NSS was found to not always perform constant-time operations when
working with DSA key material.
An attacker may be able to obtain information about a DSA private key.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All NSS users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/nss-3.52.1"
