Description


Updated nss and nspr packages that fix one security issue, various bugs,
and add enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact.

Network Security Services (NSS) is a set of libraries designed to support
the cross-platform development of security-enabled client and server
applications. Netscape Portable Runtime (NSPR) provides platform
independence for non-GUI operating system facilities.

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. (BZ#890605)

In addition, the nss 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. (BZ#893371, BZ#893372)

All NSS and NSPR users should upgrade to these updated packages, which
correct these issues and add these enhancements. After installing the
update, applications using NSS and NSPR must be restarted for the changes
to take effect.
