SuSE 11 Security Update : open-iscsi (SAT Patch Number 1240)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 41442


The remote SuSE 11 host is missing a security update.


The iscsi_discovery tool created predictable temporary files which potentially allowed attackers to overwrite system files.

Also some non-security bugs have been fixed :

- synchronize startup settings

- fix daemon segfault with CHAP


Apply SAT patch number 1240.
