Ok..here's a question for you. Platform - Red Hat 7.2.
   


Eeep!  RH7.2 hasn't had *any* security support (much less "fix
important
bugs" support) that I know of for about three years now.  You
should
*really* look into upgrading to something that still has some form of
security support.
 
Ah....well that's good to know. Wasn't aware.

Here's a solution to that too! Do a search for 'yum-1.0.3-6.0.7.x.legacy.noarch.rpm'

Then set your /etc/yum.conf file with the following contents:

[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest
exactarch=1
#exclude=kernel*

[base]
name=Red Hat Linux $releasever base
baseurl=http://download.fedoralegacy.org/redhat/$releasever/os/$basearch
gpgcheck=1

[updates]
name=Red Hat Linux $releasever updates
baseurl=http://download.fedoralegacy.org/redhat/$releasever/updates/$basearch
gpgcheck=1

#[updates-testing]
#name=Red Hat Linux $releasever updates-testing
#baseurl=http://download.fedoralegacy.org/redhat/$releasever/updates-testing/$ba
search
#gpgcheck=1

[legacy-utils]
name=Fedora Legacy utilities for Red Hat Linux $releasever
baseurl=http://download.fedoralegacy.org/redhat/$releasever/legacy-utils/$basear
ch
gpgcheck=1

---------------------------
Then run 'yum update'

You'll be decently secured, of course, behind a real firewall.
