Bug Fix Advisory pinentry bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1096-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-07-27
Last updated on: 2011-12-06
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

Updated pinentry packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The pinentry package contains a collection of simple PIN or password entry
dialogs, which utilize the Assuan protocol as described by the Project Aegypten.
The pinentry package also contains the command line version of the PIN entry
dialog.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, there was a problem when entering a password using the
pinentry-curses utility; an error message was displayed instead of the password
entry dialog if pinentry-curses was run under a user different from the user who
owned the current tty. This bug has been fixed in this update so that no error
message is now displayed and pinentry-curses asks for a password as expected.
(BZ#677665)

All users of pinentry are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix this bug.
