Bug Fix Advisory device-mapper-multipath bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:1111-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-07-24
Last updated on: 2012-07-24
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

Updated device-mapper-multipath packages that fix one bug are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The device-mapper-multipath packages provide tools for managing multipath
devices using the device-mapper multipath kernel module.

This update fixes the following bug:

* When a multipath vector (a dynamically allocated array) was resized to a
smaller size, device-mapper-multipath did not reassign the pointer to the array.
If the array location was changed by reducing its size, device-mapper-multipath
corrupted its memory. With this update, device-mapper-multipath correctly
reassigns the pointer in this scenario, and memory corruption no longer occurs.
(BZ#837594)

All users of device-mapper-multipath are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which fix this bug.


Solution

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