RedHat: up2date multiple vulnerabilities Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by LinuxSecurity.com Team   
RedHat Linux This release also includes an updated RHNS-CA-CERT file, which contains an additional CA certificate. This is needed so that up2date can continue to communicate with Red Hat Network once the current CA certificate reaches its August 2003 expiration date.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Updated up2date and rhn_register clients available
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2003:177-01
Issue date:        2003-05-27
Updated on:        2003-05-27
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Keywords:          up2date rhn_register rpm Red Hat Network up2date-gnome update agent
Cross references:  
Obsoletes:         
---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Topic:

Updated versions of the rhn_register and up2date packages are now
available. The new packages include many bug fixes, and a few new features.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (Advanced Server) version 2.1 - i386, ia64
Red Hat Linux Advanced Workstation 2.1 - ia64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 2.1 - i386
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 2.1 - i386

3. Problem description:

The rhn_register and up2date packages contain the software necessary to
take advantage of Red Hat Network functionality.

The up2date package incorporates improvements in handling package
dependencies and "obsoletes" processing, along with many other bug fixes.

This release also includes an updated RHNS-CA-CERT file, which contains an
additional CA certificate.  This is needed so that up2date can continue to
communicate with Red Hat Network once the current CA certificate reaches
its August 2003 expiration date.

All users of Red Hat Network should therefore upgrade to these erratum
packages.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed  (http://bugzilla.Red Hat.com/bugzilla for more info):

67865 - "up2date --version" does NOT display version
65423 - "up2date -f" does not update skipped packages on first attempt
64851 - Non fatal Gtk errors when up2date hits a package already in its cache
64796 - up2date segfaults during Migration
64791 - Typo in manpage of up2date
64771 - Updating from 7.2 to 7.3 then using up2date yields 557 "outdated" packages in RHN
63921 - "kb" for file sizes should probably be "kB"
63917 - "toverify" typo in up2date
63907 - "Overrite" typo in up2date
63484 - Can't only select skipped files
63301 - unknown signatures aren't warned
53247 - up2date -u -nox fails
