Bug Fix Advisory sysfsutils bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:1453-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-11-12
Last updated on: 2013-02-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

Updated sysfsutils packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The sysfsutils packages provide a suite of daemons to manage access to remote
directories and authentication mechanisms. The sysfsutils suite provides an NSS
and PAM interface toward the system and a pluggable backend system to connect to
multiple different account sources. It is also the basis to provide client
auditing and policy services for projects like FreeIPA.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, sysfs directories were not closed as expected. As a
consequence, the libsysfs library could leak memory in long running programs
that frequently opened and closed sysfs directories. This update modifies the
underlying code to close sysfs directories as expected. (BZ#671554)

All users of sysfsutils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix 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
Hat Network to apply this update are available at
