- When certmonger was set up to not attempt to obtain a new certificate and the certificate's valid remaining time crossed a configured time to live (TTL) threshold, certmonger warned of a certificate's impending not-valid-after date. Certmonger then immediately logged the warning again, and continued to do so indefinitely, causing the /var/log/messages file to fill up with warnings. This bug has been fixed and certmonger returns a warning again only when another configured TTL threshold is crossed or the service is restarted.
- When certmonger attempts to save a certificate to an NSS database, it necessarily opens that database for writing. Previously, if any other process, including any other certmonger tasks that could require access to that database, had the database open for writing, that database could become corrupted. This update backports changes from later versions of certmonger which change its behavior. Now, actions that could result in database modifications are only performed one at a time.
