Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.56369
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2006:0016
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2006:0016.

The initscripts package contains the basic system scripts used to boot
your Red Hat system, change runlevels, and shut the system down cleanly.
Initscripts also contains the scripts that activate and deactivate most
network interfaces.

A bug was found in the way initscripts handled various environment
variables when the /sbin/service command is run. It is possible for a local
user with permissions to execute /sbin/service via sudo to execute
arbitrary commands as the 'root' user. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) assigned the name CVE-2005-3629 to
this issue.

The following issues have also been fixed in this update:

* extraneous characters were logged on bootup

* fsck was attempted on file systems marked with _netdev in rc.sysinit
before they were available

* the dynamically-linked /sbin/multipath was called instead of the correct
/sbin/multiplath.static

Additionally, this update includes support for partitioned multipath
devices and a technology preview of static IP over InifiniBand.

All users of initscripts should upgrade to this updated package, which
resolves these issues.

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
