SUSE has issued an update for multiple packages. This fixes some vulnerabilities, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to disclose potentially sensitive information, malicious users to gain escalated privileges, and malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) or potentially compromise a vulnerable system.
A vulnerability is caused due to temporary files being handled insecurely by the opensuse-updater on openSUSE 10.2, which can be exploited to disclose sensitive information (e.g. passwords) via symlink attacks.
Solution: Updated packages are available via YaST Online Update and the SUSE FTP server.
