openSUSE Security Update : apache2-mod_nss (openSUSE-SU-2014:0979-1)

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


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

apache2-mod_nss is alternative yet not exclusive to mod_nss. This
update introduces Server Name Indication support to mod_nss, which was
not available previously. In addition to SNI, GCM ciphers have been
added to the cipher list of mod_nss. A bug was corrected that
prevented the entry of the certificate store passphrase if such a
passphrase was set. Please note that the configuration presets were
slightly changed so that the new ciphers are preferred (NSSCipherSuite
directive), and the VirtualHost directive is now contained in
/etc/apache2/vhosts.d/vhost-nss.templace (not used by apache because
not named *.conf).
