Vulnerability Scan Summary

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
Updated versions of the rhn_register and up2date packages are now
available. The new packages include many bug fixes, and a few new features.

dependencies and "obsoletes" processing, along with many other bug fixes.
This release also includes an updated RHNS-CA-CERT file, which contains an
additional CA certificate. This is needed so that up2date can continue to
communicate with Red Hat Network once the current CA certificate reaches
its August 2003 expiration date.
All users of Red Hat Network should therefore upgrade to these erratum
