nspr update
==========================================================================

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:

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.
