Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.58973
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0631
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0631.

coolkey contains the driver support for the CoolKey and Common Access Card
(CAC) Smart Card products. The CAC is used by the U.S. Government.

Steve Grubb discovered a flaw in the way coolkey created a temporary
directory. A local attacker could perform a symlink attack and cause
arbitrary files to be overwritten. (CVE-2007-4129)

In addition, the updated packages contain fixes for the following bugs in
the CAC Smart Card support:

* CAC Smart Cards can have from 1 to 3 certificates. The coolkey driver,
however, was not recognizing cards if they had less than 3 certificates.

* logging into a CAC Smart Card token with a new application would cause
other, already authenticated, applications to lose their login status
unless the Smart Card was then removed from the reader and re-inserted.

All CAC users should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve 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
