 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:003

 Package : rootcerts
 Date    : January 9, 2013
 Affected: 2011.

 Problem Description:

 Google reported to Mozilla that TURKTRUST, a certificate authority in
 Mozillas root program, had mis-issued two intermediate certificates
 to customers. The issue was not specific to Firefox but there was
 evidence that one of the certificates was used for man-in-the-middle
 (MITM) traffic management of domain names that the customer did not
 legitimately own or control. This issue was resolved by revoking the
 trust for these specific mis-issued certificates (CVE-2013-0743).
 
 The rootcerts package has been upgraded to address this flaw and the
 Mozilla NSS package has been rebuilt to pickup the changes.
