SuSE9 Security Update : permissions and filesystem (YOU Patch Number 10539)
High Nessus Plugin ID 41081
SynopsisThe remote SuSE 9 host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionIt is technically impossible to change permissions files in of world writeable directories that don't have the sticky bit set in a secure way. This update therefore removes /var/lib/xmcd/discog from /etc/permissions*. Furthermore permissions handling of files below /var/games is removed. To be able to change permissions of directories in world writeable directories in a secure way a slash must be appended to the path in the /etc/permssions* file. This update corrects missing slashes amongst others for /usr/src/packages/*.
