Description Vincent Danen 2010-04-23 16:37:53 EDT
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.
