|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.|
The remote host is missing an update for the 'ca-certificates'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
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.
ca-certificates on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)
Please Install the Updated Packages.
