openSUSE Security Update : cloud-init (openSUSE-2019-2633)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 131693


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This update for cloud-init to version 19.2 fixes the following issues :

Security issue fixed :

- CVE-2019-0816: Fixed the unnecessary extra ssh keys that were added to authorized_keys (bsc#1129124).

Non-security issues fixed :

- Short circuit the conditional for identifying the sysconfig renderer (bsc#1154092, bsc#1142988).

- If /etc/resolv.conf is a symlink, break it. This will avoid netconfig from clobbering the changes cloud-init applied (bsc#1151488).

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-15-SP1:Update update project.


Update the affected cloud-init packages.
