 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:301
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : nss
 Date    : December 23, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in mozilla NSS:
 
 Google notified Mozilla that an intermediate certificate, which
 chains up to a root included in Mozillas root store, was loaded into
 a man-in-the-middle (MITM) traffic management device. This certificate
 was issued by Agence nationale de la scurit des systmes d'information
 (ANSSI), an agency of the French government and a certificate authority
 in Mozilla's root program. A subordinate certificate authority of
 ANSSI mis-issued an intermediate certificate that they installed on a
 network monitoring device, which enabled the device to act as a MITM
 proxy performing traffic management of domain names or IP addresses
 that the certificate holder did not own or control.
 
 The issue was not specific to Firefox but there was evidence that one
 of the certificates was used for MITM traffic management of domain
 names that the customer did not legitimately own or control. This
 issue was resolved by revoking trust in the intermediate used by the
 sub-CA to issue the certificate for the MITM device.
 
 The NSS packages has been upgraded to the 3.15.3.1 version which is
 unaffected by this security flaw.
 
 Additionally the rootcerts packages has been upgraded with the latest
 certdata.txt file as of 2013/12/04 from mozilla.
