openSUSE 10 Security Update : tomboy (tomboy-4698)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 28287
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


The tomboy mediaplayer used LD_LIBRARY_PATH unsafely by allowing empty LD_LIBRARY_PATH components.

This would enable the player to load its shared libraries of the current directory which might contain user-supplied shared libraries, potentially supplied from the network by an attacker. (CVE-2005-4790)


Update the affected tomboy package.
