Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:1243
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2011:1243.

Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

It was found that a Certificate Authority (CA) issued a fraudulent HTTPS
certificate. This update renders any HTTPS certificates signed by that
CA as untrusted, except for a select few. The now untrusted certificates
that were issued before July 1, 2011 can be manually re-enabled and used
again at your own risk in Thunderbird
however, affected certificates
issued after this date cannot be re-enabled or used. (BZ#734316)

All Thunderbird users should upgrade to this updated package, which
resolves this issue. All running instances of Thunderbird must be
restarted for the update to take effect.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
