|Title:||RedHat Update for libsoup RHSA-2011:1102-01|
|Summary:||The remote host is missing an update for the 'libsoup'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.|
The remote host is missing an update for the 'libsoup'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
libsoup is an HTTP client/library implementation for GNOME.
A directory traversal flaw was found in libsoup's SoupServer. If an
application used SoupServer to implement an HTTP service, a remote attacker
who is able to connect to that service could use this flaw to access any
local files accessible to that application via a specially-crafted request.
All users of libsoup should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. All running applications
using libsoup's SoupServer must be restarted for the update to take effect.
libsoup 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.
