Advisory: RHBA-2012:0414-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-03-26
Last updated on: 2012-06-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)

Details

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

The tcpdump tool is a command line utility for monitoring network traffic.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, the "start-time" command-line argument of the tcpslice utility was
parsed incorrectly. As a consequence, the utility produced error messages every
time the command-line argument was used. With this update, the "start-time"
command-line argument is parsed correctly, and an error message is displayed
only if "start-time" is defined in an incorrect format. (BZ#684005)

All users of tcpdump are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes
this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata relevant
to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red
