openSUSE Security Update : qemu (openSUSE-SU-2013:1202-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

The qemu guest agent creates a bunch of files with insecure
permissions when started in daemon mode. For now mask all file mode
bits for 'group' and 'others' in become_daemon(). Temporarily, for
compatibility reasons, stick with the 0666 file-mode in case of files
newly created by the 'guest-file-open' QMP call. Do so without
changing the umask temporarily.

QEMU was updated to 1.1.2 on openSUSE 12.2, and 1.3.1 on openSUSE
12.3.
