Description

A new version of iptables fixing various minor security problems and some other bugs is available.

Some problems in earlier releases of iptables could lead to bad iptables-save files, causing the firewall not to come up when iptables was restarted (e.g. at system reboot). This release also fixes some other problems.

Solution(s)

  • redhat-upgrade-iptables
  • redhat-upgrade-iptables-ipv6

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
