FreeBSD : ca_root_nss -- extraction of explicitly-untrusted certificates into trust bundle (1b27af46-d6f6-11e0-89a6-080027ef73ec)

High Nessus Plugin ID 56078


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Matthias Andree reports that the used in older versions of the ca_root_nss FreeBSD port before 3.12.11 did not take the Mozilla/NSS/CKBI untrusted markers into account and would add certificates to the trust bundle that were marked unsafe by Mozilla.


Update the affected package.
