Trouble with Red Hat Linux 7.2

— 2:17 PM on October 23, 2001

Attention, Red Hat Linux users. Steven C. Den Beste sends in this story as a public advisory.

Copies of Red Hat Linux 7.2 available from some download sites were not digitally signed by the developer, Red Hat Inc., according to Kurt Seifried, author of an online book entitled "Linux Administrator's Security Guide."

"Either Red Hat did not sign these packages, or someone subverted the distribution process before the files got to various sites," said Seifried in a security advisory issued today on the VulnWatch mailing list.

Red Hat Linux 7.2 was released to the public yesterday, so be careful when downloading.
