Description Hanno Böck gentoo-dev 2019-01-29 22:02:28 UTC
nss 3.41.1 fixes a pretty nasty DoS issue due to a NULL pointer deref. This is particularly worrying for Thunderbird, because you can send a mail to someone that will make TB unusable, it will crash on every startup. (I have a poc, but will wait some time until I share it publicly.

Please bump.
