The remote host is missing updates announced in
Network Security Services (NSS) is a set of libraries designed to support
the cross-platform development of security-enabled client and server
It was found that a Certificate Authority (CA) issued fraudulent HTTPS
certificates. This update renders any HTTPS certificates signed by that CA
as untrusted. This covers all uses of the certificates, including SSL,
S/MIME, and code signing. (BZ#734316)
Note: This fix only applies to applications using the NSS Builtin Object
Token. It does not render the certificates untrusted for applications that
use the NSS library, but do not use the NSS Builtin Object Token.
All NSS users should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct this
issue. After installing the update, applications using NSS must be
restarted for the changes to take effect.
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
