  the development of security-enabled client and server applications.

  It was found that the Malaysia-based Digicert Sdn. Bhd. subordinate
  Certificate Authority (CA) issued HTTPS certificates with weak keys. This
  update renders any HTTPS certificates signed by that CA as untrusted. This
  covers all uses of the certificates, including SSL, S/MIME, and code
  signing. Note: Digicert Sdn. Bhd. is not the same company as found at
  digicert.com. (BZ#751366)

  Note: This fix only applies to applications using the NSS Builtin Object
  Token. It does not render the certificates untrusted for applications that
  use the NSS library, but do not use the NSS Builtin Object Token.

  This update also fixes the following bug on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5:

  * When using mod_nss with the Apache HTTP Server, a bug in NSS on Red Hat
  Enterprise Linux 5 resulted in file descriptors leaking each time the
  Apache HTTP Server was restarted with the 'service httpd reload' command.
  This could have prevented the Apache HTTP Server from functioning properly
  if all available file descriptors were consumed. (BZ#743508)

  For Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, these updated packages upgrade NSS to
  version 3.12.10. As well, they upgrade NSPR (Netscape Portable Runtime) to
  version 4.8.8 and nss-util to version 3.12.10 on Red Hat
  Enterprise Linux 6, as required by the NSS update. (BZ#735972, BZ#736272,
  BZ#735973)

  All NSS users should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct this
  issue. After installing the update, applications using NSS must be
  restarted for the changes to take effect. In addition, on Red Hat
  Enterprise Linux 6, applications using NSPR and nss-util must also be
  restarted.");
