middle attack to view sensitive information or alter encrypted
communications. These certificates were marked as explicitly not
trusted to prevent their misuse.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
