CVE-2014-1492

Priority
Medium
Description
The cert_TestHostName function in lib/certdb/certdb.c in the
certificate-checking implementation in Mozilla Network Security Services
(NSS) before 3.16 accepts a wildcard character that is embedded in an
internationalized domain name's U-label, which might allow
man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof SSL servers via a crafted certificate.
