Updated busybox packages that fix one bug are now available for Red HatEnterprise Linux 6 Extended Update Support.

BusyBox is a binary that combines a large number of common system utilities intoa single executable. BusyBox provides replacements for most GNU file utilities,shell utilities, and other command-line tools. This update fixes the following bug: * Prior to this update, the “echo” command in ash shell was handling writeerrors incorrectly: after an error, the data intended to be written was notdiscarded but saved in a buffer. As a consequence, the data could be used insubsequent invocations of “echo”. This update fixes the underlying code, and”echo” no longer saves data to a buffer in case of a write error. (BZ#1186636)Users of busybox are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fixthis bug.
