Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 5 vulnerabilities.

1) Race condition

EUVDB-ID: #VU28522

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1: 5.3 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N/E:P/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-12399

CWE-ID: CWE-362 - Concurrent Execution using Shared Resource with Improper Synchronization ('Race Condition')

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to gain access to sensitive information.

The vulnerability exists due to time differences in Mozilla NSS library during the process of generating a DSA signature, the nonce value 'k' is not padded, exposing the bit length. Combined with other techniques, this can result in the recovery of the DSA private key.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.
