2. Relevant releases/architectures:

3. Problem description:

An error existed in the authorization checks in the version of cyrus-sasl

shipped with Red Hat Linux 7.  Due to this bug, users who had been

successfully authenticated could be allowed access to resources even if the

For each RPM for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filename]

where filename is the name of the RPM.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):
