openSUSE Security Update : build (openSUSE-SU-2011:0174-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 53699


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


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).


Update the affected build package.
