Irregular process crash (certutil)
« on: April 06, 2013, 08:54:07 PM »
Following a system hang, I was looking through the console messages and noticed that there are 20 User Diagnostic Reports in the past two days pointing to a crash of the process 'certutil' in path /Users/myusername/Library/Application Support/Avast/nss/certutil.

The specific error Dyld error message is "Symbol not found: _SECKEY_RSAPSSParamsTemplate".

I don't know if this had anything to do with the system hang (which has occurred only this one time in the past two days) but it looks like a problem.

Anyone know anything about this?
