4.43. cyrus-sasl

Updated cyrus-sasl packages that fix two bugs and add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The cyrus-sasl packages contain the Cyrus implementation of the Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL), a method for adding authentication support to connection-based protocols.

Bug Fixes

Prior to this update, the ntlm plug-in did not work due to a code error. This update modifies the source code so that the plug-in now works as expected.
Prior to this update, creating the user ID and the group ID of the saslauth daemon caused conflicts. This update corrects this behavior and now the saslauth daemon works as expected.
Prior to this update, cyrus-sasl displayed redundant warnings during the compilation. With this update, cyrus-sasl has been modified and now works as expected.


This update adds support of partial Relocation Read-Only (RELRO) for the cyrus-sasl libraries.
All users of cyrus-sasl are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add this enhancement.
