Description

The NSS package contained outdated CA certificates.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.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
