Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for ca-certificates RHSA-2011:1248-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'ca-certificates'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'ca-certificates'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
This package contains the set of CA certificates chosen by the Mozilla
Foundation for use with the Internet Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).

It was found that a Certificate Authority (CA) issued fraudulent HTTPS
certificates. This update removes that CA's root certificate from the
ca-certificates package, rendering any HTTPS certificates signed by that CA
as untrusted. (BZ#734381)

All users should upgrade to this updated package. After installing the
update, all applications using the ca-certificates package must be
restarted for the changes to take effect.

Affected Software/OS:
ca-certificates on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Solution:
Please Install the Updated Packages.
