Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'sos'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
Sos is a set of tools that gather information about system hardware and
configuration.

The sosreport utility incorrectly included Certificate-based Red Hat
Network private entitlement keys in the resulting archive of debugging
information. An attacker able to access the archive could use the keys to
access Red Hat Network content available to the host. This issue did not
affect users of Red Hat Network Classic. (CVE-2011-4083)

This updated sos package also includes numerous bug fixes and enhancements.
Space precludes documenting all of these changes in this advisory.
Documentation for these bug fixes and enhancements will be available
shortly from the Technical Notes document, linked to in the References
section.

All users of sos are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains backported patches to correct these issues and add these
enhancements.

Affected Software/OS:
sos on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
