3. Description:

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

This erratum blacklists a small number of HTTPS certificates by adding
them, flagged as untrusted, to the NSS Builtin Object Token (the
libnssckbi.so library) certificate store. (BZ#689430)

Note: This fix only applies to applications using the NSS Builtin Object
Token. It does not blacklist the certificates for applications that use the
NSS library, but do not use the NSS Builtin Object Token (such as curl).

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.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

689430 - Compromised certificates
