The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
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
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.
