MFSA 2006-60 reported that RSA digital signatures with a low exponent (typically 3) could be forged. This flaw was corrected in the Mozilla Network Security Services (NSS) library version 3.11.3 used by Firefox 2.0 and current development versions of Mozilla clients.
Ulrich Kuehn reported that Firefox 188.8.131.52, which incorporated NSS version 3.10.2, was incompletely patched and remained vulnerable to a variant of this attack.
None, upgrade to a fixed version.
