Fedora Update Notification
2012-09-28 07:57:24

Name        : remctl
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 3.3
Release     : 1.fc17
URL         : http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/software/remctl
Summary     : Client/server for Kerberos-authenticated command execution
Description :

remctl (the client) and remctld (the server) implement a client/server
protocol for running single commands on a remote host using Kerberos
v5 authentication and returning the output. They use a very simple
GSS-API-authenticated network protocol, combined with server-side ACL
support and a server configuration file that maps remctl commands to
programs that should be run when that command is called by an
authorised user.

Update Information:

New upstream release. Fixes a file descriptor leak when checking ACL files. This would cause long-running remctld processes to eventually run out of available file descriptors.
