    nss update
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 14.10
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    NSS was updated to refresh the CA certificates bundle.
    
    Software Description:
    - 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    The NSS package contained outdated CA certificates.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:
      libnss3                         2:3.17.4-0ubuntu0.14.10.1
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      libnss3                         2:3.17.4-0ubuntu0.14.04.1
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      libnss3                         3.17.4-0ubuntu0.12.04.1
    
    Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
      libnss3-1d                      3.17.4-0ubuntu0.10.04.1
    
    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.
