Posted on: 03/16/2004 05:11 AM

Synopsis: Updated sysstat packages fix security vulnerabilities
Advisory ID: WBSA-2004:053-01
Issue date: 2004-03-10
Updated on: 2004-03-10
Product: White Box Enterprise Linux 3.0 (i386)
Cross references:
CVE Names: CAN-2004-0107 CAN-2004-0108

Updated sysstat packages that fix various bugs and security issues are now available.

NOTE: This errata package also picks up a patch for the /lib64 problem which required a .WB1 package. This means that as of this release there is no longer any functional difference between the RHEL and WBEL package. The name is still a .WB2 so that up2date will notice it is newer.
(Thanks to Dragan D. Vecerina who noticed this naming problem over the weekend when the first errata version appeared.)

More information is available in Red Hat, Inc's original advisory available on their site at:


To install this new package on your White Box Enterprise Linux system use the Up2Date Network or Yum.

Note: Be sure to change the default Up2Date or Yum server from the initial location to prevent undue load to the whiteboxlinux.org server, which doesn't have a lot of outbound bandwidth. The config files already have entries for mirror sites commented out.

Up2Date's configuration file is at /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources

Yum's configuration is in /etc/yum.conf
