Fedora 16 : ca-certificates-2011.78-1.fc16 (2011-11907)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update includes the latest updates to the root Certificate
Authority list from Mozilla.

It was found that a Certificate Authority (CA) issued fraudulent HTTPS
certificates. This update removes that CA's root certificate from the
ca-certificates package, rendering any HTTPS certificates signed by
that CA as untrusted.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
