Daniel Bleichenbacher recently described an implementation
error in RSA signature verification. For RSA keys with
exponent 3 it is possible for a possible hacker to forge a
signature that which would be incorrectly verified by the
NSS library. (CVE-2006-4340)

All users of NSS, which includes users of Firefox,
Thunderbird, Seamonkey, and other mozilla.org products, are
recommended to update to this package, which contains NSS
version 3.11.3 which is not vulnerable to this issue.
