SUSE has issued updates for multiple packages. This fixes multiple security issues and vulnerabilities, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to disclose potentially sensitive information, gain escalated privileges, and compromise a user's system and by malicious users to conduct script insertion and SQL injection attacks, cause a DoS (Denial of Service), bypass certain security restrictions, and compromise a vulnerable system and by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting, script insertion, cross-site request forgery, and spoofing attacks, bypass certain security restrictions, disclose potentially sensitive information, manipulate certain data, cause a DoS (Denial of Service), compromise an application using the library, potentially compromise a user's system, and potentially compromise a vulnerable system.
1) The SUSE Lifecycle Management Server application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to perform unspecified actions if a logged-in user visits a malicious web site.
2) A security issue exists in the pre-installed images of the WebYaST appliance, which generates the same secret key used to create session cookies.
3) A security issue exists in LXSession due to "lxsession-logout" not properly locking the screen before suspending, hibernating, or switching users and can be exploited to compromise a user's system.
Solution: Apply updated packages via YaST Online Update or the SUSE FTP server.
