openSUSE Security Update : aaa_base (openSUSE-SU-2013:1955-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 74875


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


On systems installed via the Live Media that /etc/shadow file was readable by the 'users' group, which was not intended. (bnc#843230, CVE-2013-3713)

Reason for this was that the user 'root' was put into the 'users' group.

Also a commandline completion bug was fixed :

- Use only bash and readline defaults for fallback completion (bnc#851908)


Update the affected aaa_base packages.
