Package        : nspr
Vulnerability  : integer overflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2013-5607

It was discovered that NSPR, Netscape Portable Runtime library, could
crash an application using the library when parsing a certificate that
causes an integer overflow. This flaw only affects 64-bit systems.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 4.8.6-1+squeeze1.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 2:4.9.2-1+deb7u1.

For the testing distribution (jessie), and the unstable distribution
(sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2:4.10.2-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your nspr packages.
