SuSE 10 Security Update : openslp (ZYPP Patch Number 7187)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 50842


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.


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


The openslp daemon could run into an endless loop when receiving specially crafted packets (CVE-2010-3609). This has been fixed.

Additionally the following non-security bugs were fixed :

- This openSLP update extends the net.slp.isDABackup mechanism introduced with the previous update by a new configuration option 'DABackupLocalReg'.

- This option tells the openslp server to also backup local registrations. (bnc#597215)

- In addition, standard compliance was fixed by stripping leading and trailing white spaces when doing string comparisons of scopes.


Apply ZYPP patch number 7187.
