A vulnerability has been reported in Network Security Services (NSS), which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise an application using the library.
The vulnerability is caused due to the "NSS_NoDB_Init()" function incorrectly constructing a file path for the "pkcs11.txt" configuration file. This can be exploited to load arbitrary security modules via the "library" directive when a configuration file is loaded from a remote WebDAV or SMB share.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
Solution: Fixed in the CVS repository.
Provided and/or discovered by: Reported by hclam in a bug report.
