Amazon Linux AMI : mod_nss (ALAS-2013-253)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description :

A flaw was found in the way mod_nss handled the NSSVerifyClient
setting for the per-directory context. When configured to not require
a client certificate for the initial connection and only require it
for a specific directory, mod_nss failed to enforce this requirement
and allowed a client to access the directory when no valid client
certificate was provided. (CVE-2013-4566)
