CVE-2013-1739 (
  Mozilla Network Security Services (NSS) before 3.15.2 does not ensure that
  data structures are initialized before read operations, which allow remote
  attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other
  impact via vectors that trigger a decryption failure.

Do we want to add back 3.14.4?

> Do we want to add back 3.14.4?

Please don't. nss-3.15 introduced TLS-1.2 which is the only TLS implementation out there that AFAIK has no known attack vector. And besides, nss-3.15.2 is already stable where it's necessary.
Comment 17 Dirkjan Ochtman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-10-24 11:50:59 UTC
I have no problem with that, but I thought we might have stuff in the tree that depends on the 3.14 slot.

if we do, it's not specified in *DEPEND -- if it was then repoman would've caught it.  I also grepped the tree just to be safe and didn't get any hits.
