RHEL 2.1 : up2date (RHSA-2003:268)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

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

Description :

New versions of the up2date and rhn_register clients are available and
are required for continued access to Red Hat Network.

The rhn_register and up2date packages contain the software necessary
to take advantage of Red Hat Network functionality.

This erratum includes an updated RHNS-CA-CERT file, which contains a
new CA certificate. This new certificate is needed so that up2date can
continue to communicate with Red Hat Network after 28 August 2003.
Without this updated certificate, users will see SSL Connection Errors
reported by up2date or rhn_register.

All users must upgrade to these erratum packages in order to continue
to use Red Hat Network. This includes both interactive use of up2date,
as well as actions scheduled by the RHN website.
