Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : mozilla (MDVSA-2011:133-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Security issues were identified and fixed in mozilla firefox and
thunderbird :

As more information has come to light about the attack on the
DigiNotar Certificate Authority we have improved the protections added
in MFSA 2011-34. The main change is to add explicit distrust to the
DigiNotar root certificate and several intermediates. Removing the
root as in our previous fix meant the certificates could be considered
valid if cross-signed by another Certificate Authority. Importantly
this list of distrusted certificates includes the PKIOverheid
(PKIGovernment) intermediates under DigiNotar's control that did not
chain to DigiNotar's root and were not previously blocked.

Additionally, some packages which require so, have been rebuilt and
are being provided as updates.
