RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Rebase package(s) to version: nss-3.15.2 Highlights, important fixes, or notable enhancements: A security-relevant bug has been resolved in NSS 3.15.2. (CVE-2013-1739) Avoid uninitialized data read in the event of a decryption failure. Upstream URL: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=894370 MD2, MD4, and MD5 signatures are no longer accepted for OCSP or CRLs, consistent with their handling for general certificate signatures. AES-GCM Ciphersuites: AES-GCM cipher suite (RFC 5288 and RFC 5289) support has been added when TLS 1.2 is negotiated. Specifically, the following cipher suites are now supported: TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256

Description Kai Engert (:kaie) (inactive account) 2013-09-26 19:59:13 UTC
This proposes to pick up the NSS fix CVE-2013-1739 released by upstream in NSS 3.15.2 from https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=894370

The bug is not yet publicly visible.

The patch is small and changes the SSL library contained in the NSS main package (not softokn, not util).

Two options:
- either pick up NSS 3.15.2 for RHEL 7 initial release
- or add the patch from https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=894370

Comment 2 Kai Engert (:kaie) (inactive account) 2013-09-26 20:49:59 UTC
After discussing on IRC:
We'd prefer to rebase RHEL 7 to NSS 3.15.2

This will require also to update the nss-util and nss-softokn packages, which should be trivial?
