1. Summary:

Updated spacewalk-backend packages that fix one security issue are now
available for Red Hat Network Proxy 5.4.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

6Server-RHNProxy - noarch
Red Hat Network Proxy 5.4 (RHEL v.5) - noarch

3. Description:

Red Hat Network (RHN) Proxy provides a mechanism for caching content, such
as package updates from Red Hat or custom content created for an
organization on an internal, centrally-located server.

If a user submitted a system registration XML-RPC call to an RHN Proxy
server (for example, by running "rhnreg_ks") and that call failed, their
RHN user password was included in plain text in the error messages both
stored in the server log and mailed to the server administrator. With this
update, user passwords are excluded from these error messages to avoid the
exposure of authentication credentials. (CVE-2012-0059)

Users of Red Hat Network Proxy are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which correct this issue. For this update to take effect,
Red Hat Network Proxy must be restarted. Refer to the Solution section for
details.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259
