openSUSE Security Update : libpulse-browse0 (libpulse-browse0-2131)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 45103
SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
DescriptionDue to a race condition in pulseaudio a local attacker could make pulseaudio change ownership and permissions of arbitrary files. The problem is only security relevant if pulseaudio is run in 'system mode' which is not the case by default (CVE-2009-1299).
This update also improves some latency problems with pulseaudio.
SolutionUpdate the affected libpulse-browse0 packages.
