Fedora 16 : ca-certificates-2011.78-1.fc16 (2011-11907)
High Nessus Plugin ID 56106
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update includes the latest updates to the root Certificate Authority list from Mozilla.
It was found that a Certificate Authority (CA) issued fraudulent HTTPS certificates. This update removes that CA's root certificate from the ca-certificates package, rendering any HTTPS certificates signed by that CA as untrusted.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected ca-certificates package.
