Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.

Description :

An updated scsi-target-utils package that fixes one security issue is
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System
(CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is
available from the CVE link in the References section.

The scsi-target-utils package contains the daemon and tools to set up
and monitor SCSI targets. Currently, iSCSI software and iSER targets
are supported.

A format string flaw was found in scsi-target-utils' tgtd daemon. A
remote attacker could trigger this flaw by sending a carefully-crafted
Internet Storage Name Service (iSNS) request, causing the tgtd daemon
to crash. (CVE-2010-0743)

All scsi-target-utils users should upgrade to this updated package,
which contains a backported patch to correct this issue. All running
scsi-target-utils services must be restarted for the update to take
effect.
