openSUSE 10 Security Update : python-wbem (python-wbem-2692)

High Nessus Plugin ID 27409


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This update switches the usage from python's SSL class to python-openssl. The original python class does not verify the SSL certificates which makes python-wbem vulnerable to a man-in-the-middle attack.


Update the affected python-wbem package.
