SuSE 11.1 Security Update : openSLP (SAT Patch Number 3312)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 51628

Synopsis

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

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 :

- 564504: Fix handling of DA answers if both active and passive DA detection is off

- 597215: Add configuration options to openSLP:
net.slp.DASyncReg makes slpd query statically configured DAs for registrations, net.slp.isDABackup enables periodic writing of remote registrations to a backup file which is also read on startup. Both options can be used to decrease the time between the start of the slpd daemon and slpd knowing all registrations.

- 601002: reduce CPU usage spikes on machines with many connections by using the kernel netlink interface instead of reading the /proc filesystem.

- 626444: Standard compliance was fixed by stripping leading and trailing white spaces when doing string comparisons of scopes.

Solution

Apply SAT patch number 3312.
