Important: nss, nss-util, and nspr (SL6)

Synopsis: Important: nss, nss-util, and nspr security, bug fix, and enhancement update
Issue Date: 2013-01-31
CVE Numbers: CVE-2013-0743

It was found that a Certificate Authority (CA) mis-issued two intermediate
certificates to customers. These certificates could be used to launch man-in-
the-middle attacks. This update renders those certificates as untrusted. This
covers all uses of the certificates, including SSL, S/MIME, and code signing.

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.

In addition, the nss package has been upgraded to upstream version 3.13.6, the
nss-util package has been upgraded to upstream version 3.13.6, and the nspr
package has been upgraded to upstream version 4.9.2. These updates provide a
number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous versions.

After installing this update, applications using NSS, NSPR, or nss-util must be
restarted for this update to take effect.
