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 openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

This update fixes an integer overflow in the BZ2_decompress function of bzip2/libbz2. This can be exploited via a crafted archive to cause a denial of service or even execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-0405)

Solution

Update the affected bzip2 packages.
