Tavis Ormandy discovered that nss, the Mozilla Network Security Service library, is prone to a heap overflow flaw when verifying DSA or RSA-PPS signatures, which could result in denial of service or potentially the execution of arbitrary code.

For Debian 8 jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 2:3.26-1+debu8u14.

We recommend that you upgrade your nss packages.
