Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Red Hat Network Satellite Server version 5.0.1 is now available which
fixes a security issue in version 5.0.0.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.

During an internal code audit, a flaw was found in an unused back-end
XMLRPC handler first added to Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.0.0.
A remote attacker with valid authentication credentials who was able
to connect to a Satellite Server could use this flaw to execute
arbitrary code on the server as the 'apache' user. (CVE-2007-4132)

Users of Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.0.0 are advised to upgrade
to 5.0.1 which removes the unused, vulnerable handler.

Note: This issue did not affect the hosted version of Red Hat Network
or versions of Red Hat Network Satellite Server prior to 5.0.0.
