Re: Fake Emails about Emergency Security Update



If you dont use the Redhat site and/or Redhat recommended mirrors to update
your machine then there is a risk.

Could up2date or yum check against a list of recommended sites stored at
Redhat (downloaded when they are run each time) and a warning message appears
if the update site URL is not a recommended one?
