SuSE 11 Security Update : glib2 (SAT Patch Number 1831)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

When copying symbolic links the g_file_copy function set the target of
the link to mode 0777 therefore exposing potentially sensitive
information or allowing other user to modify files they should not
have access to (CVE-2009-3289). This has been fixed.

This update also fixes a problem where glib2 couldn't access remote
URLs when run outside of a GNOME session.
