Security Advisory Updated iptables packages are available

Advisory: RHSA-2001:144-04
Type: Security Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2001-10-30
Last updated on: 2001-11-05
Affected Products: Red Hat Linux 7.1
Red Hat Linux 7.2
CVEs (cve.mitre.org): CVE-2001-1387
CVE-2001-1388

Details

A new version of iptables fixing various minor security problems and some
other bugs is available.

Some problems in earlier releases of iptables could lead to bad
iptables-save files, causing the firewall not to come up when iptables
was restarted (e.g. at system reboot).

This release also fixes some other problems.


Solution

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

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
