From: Pat Riehecky <riehecky-13hema8v3vg <at> public.gmane.org>
Subject: Security ERRATA Important: nss, nss-util, and nspr on SL6.x i386/x86_64
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.scientific.errata
Date: Friday 1st February 2013 15:47:45 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Synopsis:          Important: nss, nss-util, and nspr security, bug fix, 
and enhancement update
Issue Date:        2013-01-31
CVE Numbers:       None
--

It was found that a Certificate Authority (CA) mis-issued two intermediate
certificates to customers. These certificates could be used to launch 
man-in-
the-middle attacks. This update renders those certificates as untrusted. 
This
covers all uses of the certificates, including SSL, S/MIME, and code 
signing.

Note: This fix only applies to applications using the NSS Builtin Object 
Token.
It does not render the certificates untrusted for applications that use 
the NSS
library, but do not use the NSS Builtin Object Token.

In addition, the nss package has been upgraded to upstream version 
3.13.6, the
nss-util package has been upgraded to upstream version 3.13.6, and the nspr
package has been upgraded to upstream version 4.9.2. These updates provide
a
number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous versions.

After installing this update, applications using NSS, NSPR, or nss-util 
must be
restarted for this update to take effect.
