Updated cyrus-sasl packages are now available for Red Hat Linux 7.

An error existed in the authorization checks in the version of cyrus-sasl shipped with Red Hat Linux 7. Due to this bug, users who had been successfully authenticated could be allowed access to resources even if the system had been configured to deny these users access.

rpm -Fvh [filename]

where filename is the name of the RPM.
