   Mozilla NSS was updated to 3.16.5 to fix a RSA certificate forgery issue.

   MFSA 2014-73 / CVE-2014-1568: Antoine Delignat-Lavaud, security researcher
   at Inria Paris in team Prosecco, reported an issue in Network Security
   Services (NSS) libraries affecting all versions. He discovered that NSS is
   vulnerable to a variant of a signature forgery attack previously published
   by Daniel Bleichenbacher. This is due to lenient parsing of ASN.1 values
   involved in a signature and could lead to the forging of RSA certificates.

   The Advanced Threat Research team at Intel Security also independently
   discovered and reported this issue.
