Bugs fixed in NSS 3.32

NSS versions 3.28.x, 3.29.x. 3.30.x and 3.31.x contained a bug in function CERT_CompareName, which caused the first RDN to be ignored. NSS version 3.32 fixed this bug. (CVE-2018-5149, Bug 1361197)

This Bugzilla query returns all the bugs fixed in NSS 3.32:



NSS 3.32 shared libraries are backward compatible with all older NSS 3.x shared libraries. A program linked with older NSS 3.x shared libraries will work with NSS 3.32 shared libraries, without recompiling, or relinking. Furthermore, applications that restrict their use of NSS APIs to the functions listed in NSS Public Functions will remain compatible with future versions of the NSS shared libraries.


Bugs discovered should be reported by filing a bug report with bugzilla.mozilla.org (select the product ‘NSS’).
