Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51014
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2003:297
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2003:297.

Stunnel is a wrapper for network connections. It can be used to tunnel an
unencrypted network connection over an encrypted connection (encrypted
using SSL or TLS) or to provide an encrypted means of connecting to
services that do not natively support encryption.

A previous advisory provided updated packages to address re-entrancy
problems in stunnel's signal-handling routines. These updates did not
address other bugs that were found by Steve Grubb, and introduced an
additional bug, which was fixed in stunnel 3.26.

All users should upgrade to these errata packages, which address these
issues by updating stunnel to version 3.26.

NOTE: After upgrading, any instances of stunnel configured to run in daemon
mode should be restarted, and any active network connections that are
currently being serviced by stunnel should be terminated and reestablished.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
