Advisory: RHBA-2013:0226-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-02-04
Last updated on: 2013-02-04
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Details

Updated device-mapper-multipath packages that fix one bug are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The device-mapper-multipath packages provide tools to manage multipath devices
using the device-mapper multipath kernel module.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, the uev_discard() function did not take into account trailing NULL
bytes in stack variables. Consequently, on 32-bit systems with the cciss disk
controller driver that uses long device names, the multipathd daemon could
terminate unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. A patch has been provided to
fix uev_discard() and the crashes no longer occur in the described scenario.
(BZ#904106)

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 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
