Description Ralph Corderoy 2002-04-01 08:04:33 EST
Various files given in FTP URLs on the errata pages don't exist.

http://www.redhat.com/support/errata/RHBA-2001-155.html refers to

http://www.redhat.com/support/errata/RHEA-2001-158.html refers to
    (I haven't checked all the others.)

http://www.redhat.com/support/errata/RHSA-2002-018.html refers to
    (Again, I haven't checked them all.)

This last one is a Security Alert, yet the files which fix the problem aren't

Can I suggest you set up an automatic, repetitive, check that
scans the errata web pages and checks the files download and
have the advertised MD5 sums.

Bug #62323 is very much related.

It's been a while since this was reported, and the errata organization has
changed. Is this still a problem ?
Comment 2 Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2003-01-17 09:40:20 EST
We've altered our errata system completely - it now highlights errata packages
that have been obsoleted by more recent advisories so this problem should not
occur again.  Please reopen this bug or contact us if you see any further
issues.  Thanks for the report.
