=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for patch is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability
from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6) - x86_64

3. Description:

The patch program applies diff files to originals. The diff command is used

file).

Patch should be installed because it is a common way of upgrading
applications.
