    Vulnerability  : mis-issued intermediates
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    
    Google, Inc. discovered that the TurkTrust certification authority
    included in the Network Security Service libraries (nss) mis-issued
    two intermediate CA's which could be used to generate rogue end-entity
    certificates. This update explicitly distrusts those two intermediate
    CA's. The two existing TurkTrust root CA's remain active.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.12.8-1+squeeze6.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:3.13.6-2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:3.14.1.with.ckbi.1.93-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your nss packages.
