ALAS-2013-216


Amazon Linux AMI Security Advisory: ALAS-2013-216
Advisory Release Date: 2014-09-15 23:19 Pacific
Severity: Medium

Issue Overview:

It was discovered that NSS leaked timing information when decrypting TLS/SSL and DTLS protocol encrypted records when CBC-mode cipher suites were used. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to retrieve plain text from the encrypted packets by using a TLS/SSL or DTLS server as a padding oracle. (CVE-2013-1620 )

An out-of-bounds memory read flaw was found in the way NSS decoded certain certificates. If an application using NSS decoded a malformed certificate, it could cause the application to crash. (CVE-2013-0791 )
