Scientific Linux Security Update : nss_db on SL5.x i386/x86_64

Low Nessus Plugin ID 60780


The remote Scientific Linux host is missing a security update.


It was discovered that nss_db did not specify a path to the directory to be used as the database environment for the Berkeley Database library, causing it to use the current working directory as the default. This could possibly allow a local attacker to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2010-0826)


Update the affected nss_db package.
