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


This update rebases the nss, nss-util, and nss-softokn packages to nss-3.15.3 and nspr to nspr-4.10.2 in order to address security-relevant bugs that have been resolved in NSS 3.15.3.

For further details please refer to the upstream release notes at


For best results you should upgrade all packages at once including any devel packages.

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, nss-softokn and / or nss-util packages.
