Details

Updated yum-metadata-parser packages that fix one bug are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The yum-metadata-parser packages provide a fast metadata parser for Yum
implemented in C.

This update fixes the following bug:

* If the primary.xml file contained malformed data, the yum-metadata-parser
utility terminated unexpectedly due to a NULL pointer dereference. The
underlying source code has been modified, so that yum-metadata-parser exits
gracefully with an error message in this scenario. (BZ#725798)

All users of yum-metadata-parser are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which fix this bug.
