Greetings;

See below for an announcement from CentOS regarding a new Red Hat CVE and
kernel package, additional info can be found at this link:

https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-1997.html

Our read of the CVE does not find any issue of concern specific to the
toolkit software. There are mentions of local user privilege escalation
attacks, and very slight risks to DOS in some scenarios.

For those using a non-LiveCD system running ‘yum update’ by hand, or those
that have enabled the automated update service, will see a new kernel come
in. Rebooting will cause this kernel to be loaded, thus breaking access to
the NDT and NPAD tools for the time being.

If you are in doubt about the security of the system, feel free to review the
CVE and upgrade to the latest version as local policy dictates. We are in
the process of building and testing a new kernel, and will alert you when we
have our web100 patched version available.

Thank you for your patience and Happy Festivus;
The perfSONAR Team
