Red Hat: Updated iscsi-initiator-utils packages fix a security flaw

The iscsi package provides the server daemon for the iSCSI protocol, as well as the utility programs used to manage it. iSCSI is a protocol for distributed disk access using SCSI commands sent over Internet Protocol networks. Olaf Kirch discovered two flaws in open-iscsi. A local attacker could use these flaws to cause the server daemon to stop responding, leading to a denial of service. Fixed packages are available from updates.redhat.com.
