Advisory: RHBA-2013:1698-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-11-20

Details

Updated esc packages that fix several bugs are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The esc packages contain the Smart Card Manager GUI, which allows user to manage
security smart cards. The primary function of the tool is to enroll smart cards,
so that they can be used for common cryptographic operations, such as secure
e-mail and website access.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* The ESC utility did not start when the latest 17 series release of the
XULRunner runtime environment was installed on the system. This update includes
necessary changes to ensure that ESC works as expected with the latest version
of XULRunner. (BZ#920826)

* The ESC utility can be started manually or automatically when a card is
inserted. Previously, when ESC started automatically, the ~/.redhat/ directory
was created and granted with the read, write and execute permissions. However,
some files within this directory had the permissions to read and write only.
This inconsistency has been fixed with this update and the permissions are now
set properly in the described scenario. (BZ#961582)

* Due to a bug in the esc.desktop file, an error message has been logged in the
/var/log/messages/ directory. This update applies a patch to fix this bug and
the error message is no longer returned. (BZ#981156)

Users of esc are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these
bugs.
