Synopsis :

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

Description :

Red Hat Network Satellite Server version 5.0.2 is now available. This
update includes fixes for a number of security issues in Red Hat
Network Satellite Server Solaris client components.

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

This release corrects several security vulnerabilities in various
components shipped as part of the Red Hat Network Satellite Server
Solaris client. In a typical operating environment, these components
are not used by the Satellite Server in a vulnerable manner. These
security updates will reduce risk should these components be used by
other applications.

Two denial-of-service flaws were fixed in ZLib. (CVE-2005-2096,
CVE-2005-1849)

Multiple flaws were fixed in OpenSSL. (CVE-2006-4343, CVE-2006-4339,
CVE-2006-3738, CVE-2006-2940, CVE-2006-2937, CVE-2005-2969)

Multiple flaws were fixed in Python. (CVE-2007-4965, CVE-2007-2052,
CVE-2006-4980, CVE-2006-1542)

Users of Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.0.1 are advised to upgrade
to 5.0.2, which resolves these issues.
