SuSE9 Security Update : permissions (YOU Patch Number 10815)

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 10815.

Risk factor :

High
