openSUSE 10 Security Update : acroread (acroread-5041)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 31296


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


Adobe Acrobat Reader 8.1.2 contained a /tmp race in its 'acroread' wrapper script in the SSL certificate handling. (CVE-2008-0883)

Furthermore it contained several duplicated copies of system libraries, which have been removed for this update to make sure they are up-to-date security wise by using the system provided ones.


Update the affected acroread package.
