Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

Under some situations, Mozilla will automatically import a certificate
from an email message or web site. This behavior can be used as a
denial-of-service attack: if the certificate has a distinguished name
(DN) identical to one of the built-in Certificate Authorities (CAs),
then Mozilla will no longer be able to certify sites with certificates
issued from that CA.
