ca-certificates-java regression
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 11.10

Summary:

USN-1197-7 introduced a regression in ca-certificates-java.

Software Description:
- ca-certificates-java: Common CA certificates (JKS keystore)

Details:

USN-1197-7 fixed a vulnerability in ca-certificates-java. The new package
broke upgrades from Ubuntu 11.04 to Ubuntu 11.10. This update fixes the
problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

 It was discovered that Dutch Certificate Authority DigiNotar had
 mis-issued multiple fraudulent certificates. These certificates could allow
 an attacker to perform a "man in the middle" (MITM) attack which would make
 the user believe their connection is secure, but is actually being
 monitored.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 11.10:
  ca-certificates-java            20110912ubuntu3.2

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
