SUSE SLED11 / SLES11 Security Update : OpenSLP (SUSE-SU-2015:0922-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

This update for OpenSLP fixes a bug in SLPIntersectStringList that
could lead to an out-of-bounds read (CVE-2012-4428). Additionally, the
SLP daemon now always use localtime(3) when writing to log files to
avoid having timestamps with different timezones.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
