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

Vulnerability Insight:
The yum-updatesd package provides a daemon which checks for available
updates and can notify you when they are available via email, syslog,
or dbus.

It was discovered that yum-updatesd did not properly perform RPM package
signature checks. When yum-updatesd was configured to automatically install
updates, a remote attacker could use this flaw to install a malicious
update on the target system using an unsigned RPM or an RPM signed with an
untrusted key. (CVE-2014-0022)

All yum-updatesd users are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which contains a backported patch to correct this issue. After installing
this update, the yum-updatesd service will be restarted automatically.

Affected Software/OS:
yum-updatesd on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Solution:
Please Install the Updated Packages.
