Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

A flaw was discovered in the way file checksums were stored in the
AIDE database. A packaging flaw in the Red Hat AIDE rpm resulted in
the file database not containing any file checksum information. This
could prevent AIDE from detecting certain file modifications.
(CVE-2007-3849)

This update also fixes the following bugs :

- certain configurations could result in a segmentation
fault upon initialization.

- AIDE was unable to open its log file in the LSPP
evaluated configuration.

- if AIDE found SELinux context differences, the changed
files report it generated only included the first 32
characters of the context.
