This script is Copyright (C) 2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

This update for sssd fixes one security issue and three bugs. The
following vulnerability was fixed :

- CVE-2014-0249: Incorrect expansion of group membership
when encountering a non-POSIX group. (bsc#880245) The
following non-security fixes were also included :

- Prevent crashes of statically linked binaries using
getpwuid when sssd is used and nscd is turned off or has
caching disabled. (bsc#993582)

- Add logrotate configuration to prevent log files from
growing too large when running with debug mode enabled.
(bsc#1004220)

- Order sudo rules by the same logic used by the native
LDAP support from sudo. (bsc#1002973)

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.
