Description of the vulnerability

Several vulnerabilities were announced in NSS.

On a 64 bit computer, an attacker can generate the initialization of a large memory area, in order to trigger a denial of service. [severity:1/4; BID-63736, CVE-2013-1741]

An attacker can generate a buffer overflow in Null Cipher, in order to trigger a denial of service, and possibly to execute code. [severity:3/4; BID-63738, CVE-2013-5605]

When verifyLog is used, the return code of CERT_VerifyCert() is incorrect, so an invalid certificate may be accepted. [severity:2/4; BID-63737, CVE-2013-5606]

When an attacker has 2^30 RC4 encrypted messages with different keys, he can guess the clear text message (VIGILANCE-VUL-12530). [severity:1/4; BID-58796, CVE-2013-2566]
