The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.
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 :
- 564504: Fix handling of DA answers if both active and
passive DA detection is off
- 597215: Add configuration options to openSLP:
net.slp.DASyncReg makes slpd query statically configured
DAs for registrations, net.slp.isDABackup enables
periodic writing of remote registrations to a backup
file which is also read on startup. Both options can be
used to decrease the time between the start of the slpd
daemon and slpd knowing all registrations.
- 601002: reduce CPU usage spikes on machines with many
connections by using the kernel netlink interface
instead of reading the /proc filesystem.
- 626444: Standard compliance was fixed by stripping
leading and trailing white spaces when doing string
comparisons of scopes.
