Synopsis: Important: nss and nspr security, bug fix, and enhancement update Issue Date: 2013-01-31 CVE Numbers: None -- It was found that a Certificate Authority (CA) mis-issued two intermediate certificates to customers. These certificates could be used to launch man-in- the-middle attacks. This update renders those certificates as untrusted. This covers all uses of the certificates, including SSL, S/MIME, and code signing. In addition, the nss package has been upgraded to upstream version 3.13.6, and the nspr package has been upgraded to upstream version 4.9.2. These updates provide a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous versions. After installing the update, applications using NSS and NSPR must be restarted for the changes to take effect. -- SL5 x86_64 nspr-4.9.2-2.el5_9.i386.rpm nspr-4.9.2-2.el5_9.x86_64.rpm nspr-debuginfo-4.9.2-2.el5_9.i386.rpm nspr-debuginfo-4.9.2-2.el5_9.x86_64.rpm nss-3.13.6-3.el5_9.i386.rpm nss-3.13.6-3.el5_9.x86_64.rpm nss-debuginfo-3.13.6-3.el5_9.i386.rpm nss-debuginfo-3.13.6-3.el5_9.x86_64.rpm nss-tools-3.13.6-3.el5_9.x86_64.rpm nspr-devel-4.9.2-2.el5_9.i386.rpm nspr-devel-4.9.2-2.el5_9.x86_64.rpm nss-devel-3.13.6-3.el5_9.i386.rpm nss-devel-3.13.6-3.el5_9.x86_64.rpm nss-pkcs11-devel-3.13.6-3.el5_9.i386.rpm nss-pkcs11-devel-3.13.6-3.el5_9.x86_64.rpm i386 nspr-4.9.2-2.el5_9.i386.rpm nspr-debuginfo-4.9.2-2.el5_9.i386.rpm nss-3.13.6-3.el5_9.i386.rpm nss-debuginfo-3.13.6-3.el5_9.i386.rpm nss-tools-3.13.6-3.el5_9.i386.rpm nspr-devel-4.9.2-2.el5_9.i386.rpm nss-devel-3.13.6-3.el5_9.i386.rpm nss-pkcs11-devel-3.13.6-3.el5_9.i386.rpm - Scientific Linux Development Team
