Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2010:0449 0 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Moderate: rhn-client-tools security update 2010-06-01 18:54:39 UTC

Description Vincent Danen 2010-04-23 20:37:53 UTC
It was found that the yum-rhn-plugin caches sensitive authentication information in the world-readable /var/spool/up2date/loginAuth.pkl file.  This information could be used to download packages from Red Hat Network (Hosted or Satellite) or otherwise manipulate the package list associated with the system's profile, which could possibly prevent new errata from being installed.
