Scientific Linux Security Update : aide on SL5.x i386/x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

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.

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.
