SuSE 10 Security Update : open-iscsi (ZYPP Patch Number 6455)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 41565


The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.


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

Also several non-security bugs have been fixed :

- don't fail init script if discovery fails

- print correct ipconfig mask for dhcp

- synchronize startup settings

- fix daemon segfault with CHAP


Apply ZYPP patch number 6455.
