SuSE9 Security Update : permissions and filesystem (YOU Patch Number 10539)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 9 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

It is technically impossible to change permissions files in of world
writeable directories that don't have the sticky bit set in a secure
way. This update therefore removes /var/lib/xmcd/discog from
/etc/permissions*. Furthermore permissions handling of files below
/var/games is removed. To be able to change permissions of directories
in world writeable directories in a secure way a slash must be
appended to the path in the /etc/permssions* file. This update
corrects missing slashes amongst others for /usr/src/packages/*.

Solution :

Apply YOU patch number 10539.
