RHSA-2003-268: up Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the up packages
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
New versions of the up2date and rhn_register clients are available and
are required for continued access to Red Hat Network.
The rhn_register and up2date packages contain the software necessary to
take advantage of Red Hat Network functionality.
This erratum includes an updated RHNS-CA-CERT file, which contains a new CA
certificate. This new certificate is needed so that up2date can continue
to communicate with Red Hat Network after 28 August 2003. Without this
updated certificate, users will see SSL Connection Errors reported by
up2date or rhn_register.
All users must upgrade to these erratum packages in order to continue to
use Red Hat Network. This includes both interactive use of up2date, as
well as actions scheduled by the RHN website.
