    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 12.10
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 11.10
    - Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    NSPR update to work with the new NSS.
    
    Software Description:
    - nspr: NetScape Portable Runtime Library
    
    Details:
    
    USN-1687-1 fixed a vulnerability NSS. This update provides the NSPR needed
    to use the new NSS.
    
    Original advisory details:
    
     Two intermediate CA certificates were mis-issued by the TURKTRUST
     certificate authority. If a remote attacker were able to perform a
     man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw could be exploited to view sensitive
     information.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 12.10:
      libnspr4-0d                     4.9.4-0ubuntu0.12.10.1
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      libnspr4-0d                     4.9.4-0ubuntu0.12.04.1
    
    Ubuntu 11.10:
      libnspr4-0d                     4.9.4-0ubuntu0.11.10.1
    
    Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
      libnspr4-0d                     4.9.4-0ubuntu0.10.04.1
    
    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.
