Updated aide packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Advanced Intrusion Detection Environment (AIDE) is a program that creates a database of files on a system, and then uses that database to ensure file integrity and detect system intrusions.
- Previously, the aide utility incorrectly initialized the gcrypt library. This consequently prevented aide to initialize its database if the system was running in FIPS-compliant mode. The initialization routine has been corrected, and along with an extension to the libgcrypt's API introduced in the RHEA-2012:0486 advisory, aide now initializes its database as expected if run in a FIPS-compliant way.
All users of aide are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
