Several unauthorised SSL certificates have been found in the wild issued for the DigiNotar Certificate Authority, obtained through a security compromise with said company. Debian, like other software distributors, has as a precaution decided to disable the DigiNotar Root CA by default in the NSS crypto libraries. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.
