SuSE 10 Security Update : RPM (ZYPP Patch Number 8184)

High Nessus Plugin ID 59984


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


Multiple security vulnerabilities were reported in RPM which could have been exploited via specially crafted RPM files to cause a denial of service (application crash) or potentially allow attackers to execute arbitrary code.

Additionally, a non-security issue was fixed that could cause a division by zero in cycles calculation under rare circumstances.


Apply ZYPP patch number 8184.
