Updated gfs2-utils packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The gfs2-utils packages provide the user-space utilities necessary to mount, create, maintain and test GFS2 file systems.
Prior to this update, an overly long cluster name in /etc/cluster/cluster.conf could cause a buffer overflow when running fsck.gfs2 on a GFS2 file system with a corrupt super block. This update modifies the underlying code to to ensure that the cluster name is truncated appropriately when the super block is being rebuilt. Now, this buffer overflow condition is prevented.
All users of gfs2-utils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
