Fedora 14 : nss-3.12.10-7.fc14 (2011-15586)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This security update revokes trust in DigiCert Sdn. Bhd Intermediate
Certificate Authority from NSS - rhbz#751674

It was found that the Malaysia-based Digicert Sdn. Bhd. subordinate
Certificate Authority (CA) issued HTTPS certificates with weak keys.
This update renders any HTTPS certificates signed by that CA as
untrusted. This covers all uses of the certificates, including SSL,
S/MIME, and code signing. Note: Digicert Sdn. Bhd. is not the same
company as found at digicert.com.

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.
