    Several unauthorised SSL certificates have been found in the wild issued
    for the DigiNotar Certificate Authority, obtained through a security 
    compromise with said company. Debian, like other software
    distributors, has as a precaution decided to disable the DigiNotar
    Root CA by default in the NSS crypto libraries.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.12.3.1-0lenny5.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.12.8-1+squeeze2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.12.11-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your nss packages.
