Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for ca-certificates RHSA-2013:1866-01
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 subordinate Certificate Authority (CA) mis-issued an
intermediate certificate, which could be used to conduct man-in-the-middle
attacks. This update renders that particular intermediate certificate as
untrusted. (BZ#1038894)

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.

CVSS Score:
