Firefox update to 31.1esr (important)






This patch contains security updates for

  • mozilla-nss 3.16.4

    • The following 1024-bit root CA certificate was restored to allow more
      time to develop a better transition strategy for affected sites. It
      was removed in NSS 3.16.3, but discussion in the forum led to the decision to keep this
      root included longer in order to give website administrators more time
      to update their web servers.
      • CN = GTE CyberTrust Global Root
    • In NSS 3.16.3, the 1024-bit " Secure Server Certification
      Authority" root CA certificate was removed. In NSS 3.16.4, a 2048-bit
      intermediate CA certificate has been included, without explicit trust.
      The intention is to mitigate the effects of the previous removal of
      the 1024-bit root certificate, because many public
      Internet sites still use the "USERTrust Legacy Secure Server CA"
      intermediate certificate that is signed by the 1024-bit
      root certificate. The inclusion of the intermediate certificate is a
      temporary measure to allow those sites to function, by allowing them
      to find a trust path to another 2048-bit root CA certificate. The
      temporarily included intermediate certificate expires November 1, 2015.
  • Firefox 31.1esr Firefox is updated from 24esr to 31esr as maintenance
    for version 24 stopped
