Cb Response: cbssl script results in KeyError Exception

Cb Response: cbssl script results in KeyError Exception

Version
5.x, 6.x

Issue

Running the cbssl script, for example, when creating an SSL backup via the command /usr/share/cb/cbssl backup --out <backup_file_name>, results in a KeyError Exception. The script command itself will successfully complete.

Symptoms

Backup file '/tmp/backup' successfully created

IMPORTANT: Backup file must be securely stored.  Anyone with access to the

information contained in that file will be able to compromise the security

of sensor-server communications and potentially compromise the security of

the computers on which the sensors run.

Exception KeyError: KeyError(33788144,) in <module 'threading' from '/usr/lib64/python2.6/threading.pyc'> ignored

Solution

This error can be ignored as it will not affect the quality of the backup.

The error occurs when the script tries to cleanup previously loaded module, but fails due to the key of the originally loaded threading module being changed.
