Default Important: ca-certificates security update

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

================================================== ===================
Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: ca-certificates security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2011:1248-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-1248.html
Issue date: 2011-09-02
================================================== ===================

1. Summary:

An updated ca-certificates package that fixes one security issue is now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

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

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6) - noarch
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6) - noarch
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6) - noarch
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6) - noarch

3. Description:

This package contains the set of CA certificates chosen by the Mozilla
Foundation for use with the Internet Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).

It was found that a Certificate Authority (CA) issued fraudulent HTTPS
certificates. This update removes that CA's root certificate from the
ca-certificates package, rendering any HTTPS certificates signed by that CA
as untrusted. (BZ#734381)

All users should upgrade to this updated package. After installing the
update, all applications using the ca-certificates package 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/):
