Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 170740
Custom ca-bundle.crt overwritten on upgrade
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:08 EST
Description of problem:
ca-bundle.pem is not listed as a configuration file, causing it to be replaced
during upgrades of the openssl package.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. customize /usr/share/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.pem
2. install new version of openssl
ca-bundle.pem is replaced
ca-bundle.pem should be untouched during an upgrade
This is the same bug as 158568 reported for Fedora Core 3
We will consider fixing this bug in future if the openssl packages are updated
for other reasons (security or critical bug fixes).
This bug causes severe problems if the server is using TLS with LDAP and a
certificate signed by a locally created certification authority.
After ca-bundle.crt gets overwritten all the services which use LDAP stop
working because server can't validate the certificate used by TLS. On one of the
servers even logging in as root or local user wasn't working.
I agree that this bug is serious but I see no point in updating the package just
for this bug. It's just necessary to fix the bug if an updated package is
released again (for other reasons).
Is it possible to issue a release note or some warning so other people don't get
affected by this bug? We've spent about 20 hrs here before we've found the
reason for the outage of our servers.
