Synopsis

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

Description

Security fix for CVE-2015-4000

Update to the upstream NSS 3.19.1 release, which includes a fix for the recently published logjam attack.

The previous 3.19 release made several notable changes related to the TLS protocol, one of them was to disable the SSL 3 protocol by default.

For the full list of changes in the 3.19 and 3.19.1 releases, please refer to the upstream release notes documents :

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.

Solution

Update the affected nss, nss-softokn and / or nss-util packages.
