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.
