Scientific Linux Security Update : tzdata bug fix update on SL5.x, SL6.x i386/x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 91807
The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
This update fixes the following bugs : - In 2015, Egypt did not observe Daylight Savings Time (DST). However, in 2016, Egypt observes DST from July 7 at 24:00 to October 27 at 24:00. As a consequence of this change, the tzdata package had incorrect data regarding DST in Egypt in 2016. This has been fixed, and tzdata now has the correct data. (BZ#1334677, BZ#1342553, BZ#1346423, BZ#1346424) This update has been placed in the security tree to avoid timezone related problems such as ntp sync errors.
Update the affected tzdata and / or tzdata-java packages.
