Insight

Insight

A flaw was found in the way mod_nss handled the NSSVerifyClient setting for the per-directory context. When configured to not require a client certificate for the initial connection and only require it for a specific directory, mod_nss failed to enforce this requirement and allowed a client to access the directory when no valid client certificate was provided. (CVE-2013-4566 )

Solution

Solution

Run yum update mod_nss to update your system.
