The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
Richard Moore discovered that NSS would sometimes incorrectly match an
SSL certificate which had a Common Name that used a wildcard followed
by a partial IP address. While it is very unlikely that a Certificate
Authority would issue such a certificate, if an attacker were able to
perform a man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw could be exploited to
view sensitive information. (CVE-2010-3170)
Nelson Bolyard discovered a weakness in the Diffie-Hellman Ephemeral
mode (DHE) key exchange implementation which allowed servers to use a
too small key length. (CVE-2010-3173).
Update the affected packages.
