Synopsis:          Updated iptables packages are available

1. Topic:

Updated iptables packages which are fully compatible with recent kernel
updates are now available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.1 - i386
Red Hat Linux 7.2 - i386
Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386
Red Hat Linux 8.0 - i386

3. Problem description:

The iptables utility controls the network packet filtering code in the
Linux kernel.

Recent updates to the kernel in Red Hat Linux versions 7.1, 7.2, 7.3 and
8.0 did not also update the iptables utility, causing functions such as
owner match to stop working.

These issues could in some circumstances cause a firewall to fail to
restart after a kernel upgrade.

Users are therefore advised to upgrade to these erratum packages which
contain an update to version 1.2.8 of iptables.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed  (https://bugzilla.Red Hat.com/bugzilla for more info):

91560 - iptables-1.2.6a won't save rule with --icmp-type
