SuSE 10 Security Update : w3m (ZYPP Patch Number 7076)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 49931


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


w3m does not handle embedded NUL characters in the common name and in subject alternative names of X.509 certificates (CVE-2010-2074). This update fixes the issue and also turns on verification of x509 certificates by default which was not the case before.
