Fedora Core 5 : iscsi-initiator-utils-5.2.0.865-0.0.fc5 (2007-589)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update to iscsi-initiator-utils is a rebase to the upstream
open-iscsi-2.0-865 release. This release includes two security fixes
which are described here
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=243719 bug fixes
and new features.

The tools in this release use a different db format than past
releases, but the tools are able to read old and new formats. If you
want to use the new features you must update the db, by rediscovering
your targets and reconfiguring them. Once the db has been updated you
cannot use older tools on it.

See the README and man pages for information on the new features.

This release requires that kernel 2.6.18 or newer be used.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
