Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.58236
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0235
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0235.

The util-linux package contains a collection of basic system utilities.

A flaw was found in the way the login process handled logins which did not
require authentication. Certain processes which conduct their own
authentication could allow a remote user to bypass intended access policies
which would normally be enforced by the login process. (CVE-2006-7108)

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* The partx, addpart and delpart commands were not documented.

* The umount -l command did not work on hung NFS mounts with cached data.

* The mount command did not mount NFS V3 share where sec=none was specified.

* The mount command did not read filesystem LABEL from unpartitioned disks.

* The mount command did not recognize labels on VFAT filesystems.

* The fdisk command did not support 4096 sector size for the -b option.

* The mount man page did not list option mand or information about
/etc/mtab limitations.

All users of util-linux should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct these issues.

Solution:

Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
