The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
It was found that a subordinate Certificate Authority (CA) mis-issued
an intermediate certificate, which could be used to conduct
man-in-the-middle attacks. This update renders that particular
intermediate certificate as untrusted.
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
After installing the update, applications using NSS must be restarted
for the changes to take effect.
