Description

An updated sos package that fixes one security issue, several bugs, and adds various enhancements is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section.

Sos is a set of tools that gather information about system hardware and configuration.

The sosreport utility incorrectly included Certificate-based Red Hat Network private entitlement keys in the resulting archive of debugging information. An attacker able to access the archive could use the keys to access Red Hat Network content available to the host. This issue did not affect users of Red Hat Network Classic. (CVE-2011-4083)

This updated sos package also includes numerous bug fixes and enhancements. Space precludes documenting all of these changes in this advisory. Users are directed to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.8 Technical Notes, linked to in the References, for information on the most significant of these changes.

All sos users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues and adds these enhancements.
