This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

The openslp daemon could run into an endless loop when receiving
specially crafted packets (CVE-2010-3609). This has been fixed.

Additionally the following non-security bugs were fixed :

- This openSLP update extends the net.slp.isDABackup
mechanism introduced with the previous update by a new
configuration option 'DABackupLocalReg'.

- This option tells the openslp server to also backup
local registrations. (bnc#597215)

- In addition, standard compliance was fixed by stripping
leading and trailing white spaces when doing string
comparisons of scopes.
