 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2014:252
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : nss
 Date    : December 15, 2014
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated nss packages fix security vulnerabilities:
 
 In the QuickDER decoder in NSS before 3.17.3, ASN.1 DER decoding of
 lengths is too permissive, allowing undetected smuggling of arbitrary
 data (CVE-2014-1569).
 
 This update adds support for the TLS Fallback Signaling Cipher Suite
 Value (TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV) in NSS, which can be used to prevent protocol
 downgrade attacks against applications which re-connect using a lower
 SSL/TLS protocol version when the initial connection indicating the
 highest supported protocol version fails. This can prevent a forceful
 downgrade of the communication to SSL 3.0, mitigating CVE-2014-3566,
 also known as POODLE.  SSL 3.0 support has also been disabled by
 default in this Firefox and Thunderbird update, further mitigating
 POODLE.
