Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

On systems installed via the Live Media that /etc/shadow file was
readable by the 'users' group, which was not intended. (bnc#843230,
CVE-2013-3713)

Reason for this was that the user 'root' was put into the 'users'
group.

- Use only bash and readline defaults for fallback
completion (bnc#851908)
