The vulnerability sites (ISS, SecurityFocus) have no more information than is
currently available from the Changelog.  I chased it down further to potentially
the issue mentioned here; we'll need to spend some more time on this to isolate
the exact change and to see if the packages released with the various supported
distributions are vulnerable (and in what way).


[We prefer reports of security issues to security@redhat.com but via bugzilla is
also fine]

Comment 2 Mark J. Cox 2003-04-16 08:40:10 UTC
Errata in progress

Comment 3 Mark J. Cox 2003-07-25 13:14:57 UTC
An errata has been issued which should help the problem described in this bug report. 
This report is therefore being closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
