Description Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2009-08-03 22:09:13 UTC
CVE-2009-2409 (
  The NSS library before 3.12.3, as used in Firefox; GnuTLS before
  2.6.4 and 2.7.4; OpenSSL 0.9.8 through 0.9.8k; and other products
  support MD2 with X.509 certificates, which might allow remote
  attackers to spoof certificates by using MD2 design flaws to generate
  a hash collision in less than brute-force time.  NOTE: the scope of
  this issue is currently limited because the amount of computation
  required is still large.
Comment 1 Jory A. Pratt gentoo-dev 2009-08-04 03:26:50 UTC
Mozilla team I recommend a stabilization of nspr-4.8 with nss-3.12.3, the thunderbird bug on memory is unconfirmed in my opinion, and security takes presidency.
Comment 2 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-08-06 19:27:47 UTC
Multi-package bugs with several maintainers make no sense. Please use single bugs and a tracker if appropriate.
Comment 3 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-08-06 19:58:23 UTC
gnutls 2.6.6 is stable and all versions before 2.6.5 are affected by another GLSA, so this is not an issue.

This is a tracker for multiple packages that have been handled individually, as no remaining deps exists I'm closing this.
