Updated fprintd packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The fprintd packages contain a D-Bus service to access fingerprint readers.

Bug Fix

Due to a bug in the fprintd daemon code, long-running Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM) clients were experiencing file descriptor leaks for each iteration of authentication. With this update, the file descriptor closes after completing its job, and therefore the file descriptor leaks no longer occur.
Users of fprintd are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
