Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A

Details

An updated system-config-users package which fixes one bug is now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The system-config-users package contains a graphical user interface utility for
administrating users and groups. It depends on the libuser library.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, system-config-users did not interpret account expiry dates from
the /etc/shadow file correctly. This could have led to the account expiration
dates being one day off. This update improves handling of the account expiration
dates so that the account expiry dates are now interpreted correctly.
(BZ#447710)

All users of system-config-users should upgrade to this updated package, which
fixes this bug.
