SuSE 10 Security Update : build (ZYPP Patch Number 7372)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 53234


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


The build script uses cpio to extract untrusted rpm packages for bootstrapping virtual machines. cpio is not safe to use for this task, therefore the build script now uses bsdtar instead. (CVE-2010-4226)


Apply ZYPP patch number 7372.
