    were uncovered.

2. Impact

    Exploitation of the conditions discovered during the audit could lead 
    to a denial of service or remote root compromise.

  Update the package from our ftp server by running the following command:

  The source RPM can be downloaded here:

  **Note: You must rebuild and install the RPM if you choose to download
  and install the SRPM.  Simply installing the SRPM alone WILL NOT CLOSE

 Please verify the MD5 checksums of the updates before you install:
