(BZ#368451) * running the "setfacl" command with the '-P' flag, which is the short form of the '--physical' option, which is supposed to cause "setfacl" to skip over any symbolic links it encounters, did not work as expected: symbolic links were still followed.
(CVE-2009-4029) Avahi is an implementation of the DNS Service Discovery and Multicast DNS specifications for Zeroconf Networking.
It facilitates service discovery on a local network.
Note: as the man page suggests, the sample configuration file included with this update is the primary source of information about atd configuration options. auditd resets syslog warnings if disk space becomes available. This update adds a check that ensures such map re-load requests do not cause a deadlock.
(BZ#537792) * The man page was ambiguous in explaining the structure of dates and the supplied examples often did not work because of different date formats in various locales. The page has been rewritten to clarify that the date format accepted by aureport and ausearch is influenced by the LC_TIME environmental variable, eliminating the confusion about this issue. (BZ#525431) The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low security impact.
(BZ#507747) * the acpid package that was included with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 update contained a package update script that returned a non-zero exit code when the the /var/log/acpid log file did not exist.
However, if the acpid daemon had never been started on the system, and therefore /var/log/acpid did not exist, the faulty check caused the update process to fail, which could have resulted in two different acpid packages being installed on the same system and registered with the RPM database (rpmdb).(BZ#500095) * the "getfacl" and "setfacl" commands did not properly handle non-ASCII characters with the result that calling either command on a system with the correct locale settings still produced incorrect output, such as octal character representations.With this update, getfacl and setfacl are now able to produce correct output when using non-ASCII character sets.Avahi and Avahi-aware applications allow you to plug your computer into a network and, with no configuration, view other people to chat with, see printers to print to, and find shared files on other computers.* previously, avahi published a static SSH-SFTP service by default, regardless of the machine and regardless of whether an ssh server was running or not.It aims to provide a free library of C data structures and routines.
