openSUSE Security Update : gnome-panel (gnome-panel-753)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 40223


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


The dbus package used a too permissive configuration. Therefore intended access control for some services was not applied (CVE-2008-4311).

The new configuration denies access by default. Some dbus services break due to this setting and need an updated configuration as well.


Update the affected gnome-panel packages.
