7.79. hivex

Updated hivex packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Hivex is a library for extracting the contents of Windows Registry "hive" files, which is designed to be secure against corrupted or malicious registry files. Hive files are undocumented binary files.

Bug Fixes

Previously, the description of the package contained inappropriate text. This update provides a correction of the language used and now, the spec file contains only neutral expressions.
Certain hive files that had a very large number of child nodes under a single parent node could not be parsed. A patch has been added to allow read-only access to these child nodes.
Users of hivex are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
