Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 11.10 / 12.04 LTS / 12.10 : nss vulnerability (USN-1687-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 63537


The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.


Two intermediate CA certificates were mis-issued by the TURKTRUST certificate authority. If a remote attacker were able to perform a man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw could be exploited to view sensitive information.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected libnss3-1d package.
