 Kari Hurtta discovered that a format bug exists in the Cyrus SASL
 library, which is used to provide an authentication API for mail
 clients and servers, as well as other services such as LDAP.  The

 used by an attacker to obtain acces to a machine or to possibly acquire
 elevated privileges.  Thanks to the SuSE security team for providing
 the fix.
