Fedora 16 : firefox-6.0.2-1.fc16 / mozvoikko-1.9.0-7.fc16 / thunderbird-6.0.2-1.fc16 / etc (2011-12243)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 56153


The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.


The latest version of Firefox and Thunderbird has the following changes :

- Removed trust exceptions for certificates issued by Staat der Nederlanden (see bug mozbz#683449 and the security advisory)

- Resolved an issue with gov.uk websites (see bug mozbz#669792)

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.


Update the affected packages.
