openSUSE Security Update : xorg-x11-Xvnc (openSUSE-SU-2012:0227-1)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 75780


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


The X server had two security issues and one bug that is fixed by this update.

CVE-2011-4028: It is possible for a local attacker to deduce if a file exists or not by exploiting the way that Xorg creates its lock files.

CVE-2011-4029: It is possible for a non-root local user to set the read permission for all users on any file or directory.


Update the affected xorg-x11-Xvnc packages.
