1. Summary:

An update for patch is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

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

file).
