    1. Summary:
    
    An updated yum-updatesd package that fixes one security issue is now
    available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
    
    The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
    Important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
    base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the
    CVE link in the References section.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - noarch

    3. Description:
    
    The yum-updatesd package provides a daemon which checks for available
    updates and can notify you when they are available via email, syslog,
    or dbus.
    
    It was discovered that yum-updatesd did not properly perform RPM package
    signature checks. When yum-updatesd was configured to automatically install
    updates, a remote attacker could use this flaw to install a malicious
    update on the target system using an unsigned RPM or an RPM signed with an
    untrusted key. (CVE-2014-0022)
    
    All yum-updatesd users are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
    which contains a backported patch to correct this issue. After installing
    this update, the yum-updatesd service will be restarted automatically.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
    relevant to your system have been applied.
    
    This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the
    Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
    https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258
    
    5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
