New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

Incorrect use of an OpenSSL cleanup function can lead to memory leaks in applications. For example an SSL enabled web server such as Apache that uses PHP, curl and OpenSSL leaks memory if a SIGHUP signal was sent to Apache. The OpenSSL cleanup function was made more robust to avoid memory leaks. (CVE-2009-4355)

Solution

Apply ZYPP patch number 6784.
