DESCRIPTION:
Red Hat has issued an update for tigervnc. This fixes a security
issue, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose
potentially sensitive information.

The security issue is caused due to the vncviewer not properly
validating the X.509 certificate of a TLS VNC server before providing
client credentials. This can be exploited to e.g. disclose logon
credentials of a user by tricking the user into connecting to a
malicious server.

SOLUTION:
Updated packages are available via Red Hat Network.
