SuSE 11.3 Security Update : python-setuptools (SAT Patch Number 9116)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 73512
The remote SuSE 11 host is missing a security update.
python-setuptools so far used only HTTP to retrieve packages, which could have lead to man in the middle attacks on newly installed python code. This update adjusts it to use HTTPS, guaranteeing better connection integrity.
