               Fedora Legacy Update Advisory

Synopsis:          Updated iptables packages resolve security issues
Advisory ID:       FLSA:2252
Issue date:        2005-02-10
Product:           Red Hat Linux, Fedora Core
Keywords:          Bugfix
Cross references:  https://bugzilla.fedora.us/show_bug.cgi?id=2252
CVE Names:         CAN-2004-0986

1. Topic:

Updated iptables packages that correct a security problem are now

The iptables utility controls the network packet filtering code in the
Linux kernel.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386
Red Hat Linux 9 - i386
Fedora Core 1 - i386

3. Problem description:

Under certain conditions, iptables did not properly load the required
modules at system startup, which caused the firewall rules to fail to
load and protect the system from remote attackers. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the
name CAN-2004-0986 to this issue.

Users of iptables are advised to upgrade to these errata packages, which
contain backported patches correcting these issues.

4. Solution:

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

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which
are not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note
that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only*
contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use yum issue:

yum update

or to use apt:

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

This will start an interactive process that will result in the
appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system.  This assumes that you
have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content.
Please visit http://www fedoralegacy.org/docs for directions on how to
configure yum and apt-get.

5. Bug IDs fixed:

These packages are GPG signed by Fedora Legacy for security.  Our key is
available from http://www.fedoralegacy org/about/security.php

You can verify each package with the following command:

    rpm --checksig -v <filename>

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or
tampered with, examine only the sha1sum with the following command:

    sha1sum <filename>
