3. Problem description:

Some security problems, including a remotely exploitable information leak allowing anyone to read the stack, have been found in bind versions prior to 8.2.3.

4. Solution:

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh

where 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 directly *only* contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:


This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system.
