Details

An updated shadow-utils package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The shadow-utils package includes programs for converting UNIX password files to
the shadow password format, as well as tools for managing user and group
accounts.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, the pam_tally.so module was used to write to /var/log/faillog.
Since the module is no longer shipped, the faillog application that reads that
file became obsolete. This update removes faillog from Red Hat Enterprise Linux
6. (BZ#675168)

All users of shadow-utils are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
fixes this bug.
