Any reason you aren't requesting the CVE from them since NSS is a Mozilla product? Also, the upstream bug isn't tagged as a security issue, so Mozilla might not even know about this problem. cc'ing Dan Veditz of the Mozilla Security Group for CVE assignment and notification. ~reed -- Reed Loden reed@...dloden.com
