3. Description:

Red Hat Network Client Tools provide programs and libraries that allow your

loginAuth.pkl file, used to store session credentials for authenticating
connections to Red Hat Network servers. A local, unprivileged user could
use these credentials to download packages from the Red Hat Network. They
could also manipulate package or action lists associated with the system's
profile. (CVE-2010-1439)

Users of rhn-client-tools are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
