Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.871106
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for nss RHSA-2013:1861-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'nss'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'nss'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
Network Security Services (NSS) is a set of libraries designed to support
the cross-platform development of security-enabled client and server
applications.

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)

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.

Affected Software/OS:
nss on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server),
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.
