19 February 2015

nss update

Packages

  • nss - Network Security Service library

Details

The NSS package contained outdated CA certificates. This update refreshes
the NSS package to version 3.17.4 which includes the latest CA certificate
bundle.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 14.10
Ubuntu 14.04
Ubuntu 12.04
Ubuntu 10.04

This update uses a new upstream release, which includes additional bug
fixes. After a standard system update you need to restart any applications
that use NSS, such as Evolution and Chromium, to make all the necessary
changes.
