Bug Fix Advisory aide bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:0499-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-04-20
Last updated on: 2012-04-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated aide packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5.

Advanced Intrusion Detection Environment (AIDE) is a program that creates a
database of files on a system, and then uses that database to ensure file
integrity and detect system intrusions.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, the aide utility incorrectly initialized the gcrypt library. This
consequently prevented aide to initialize its database if the system was running
in FIPS-compliant mode. The initialization routine has been corrected, and along
with an extension to the libgcrypt's API introduced in the RHEA-2012:0484
advisory, aide now initializes its database as expected if run in a
FIPS-compliant way. (BZ#811936)

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

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata
