Fedora 14 : nss-3.12.10-7.fc14 (2011-15586)

High Nessus Plugin ID 56950


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This security update revokes trust in DigiCert Sdn. Bhd Intermediate Certificate Authority from NSS - rhbz#751674

It was found that the Malaysia-based Digicert Sdn. Bhd. subordinate Certificate Authority (CA) issued HTTPS certificates with weak keys.
This update renders any HTTPS certificates signed by that CA as untrusted. This covers all uses of the certificates, including SSL, S/MIME, and code signing. Note: Digicert Sdn. Bhd. is not the same company as found at digicert.com.

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 nss package.
