1) Solved Security Vulnerabilities

   To avoid flooding mailing lists with SUSE Security Announcements for minor
   issues, SUSE Security releases weekly summary reports for the low profile
   vulnerability fixes. The SUSE Security Summary Reports do not list or
   download URLs like the SUSE Security Announcements that are released for
   more severe vulnerabilities.

   Fixed packages for the following incidents are already available on our FTP
   server and via the YaST Online Update.

   - yast2-webclient-patch_updates
     Applying maintenance updates and security fixes can potentially take
     a long time as all packages are downloaded and installed. 
     This update improves the WebYaST user interface to show a descriptive
     timeout error message with information on how to proceed in those cases.
     In addition, the following reports were fixed:
     - 616742: PackageKit errors are ignored when applying updates
     - 591345: WebYaST generates installation specific secret key
               during RPM installation (CVE-2010-1507)
     Affected Products: SLE11

   - perl
     perl Safe.pm module was affected by two problems where attackers
     could break out of such a safed execution.
     (CVE-2010-1447, CVE-2010-1168)
     Additionally the following non-security bugs were addressed too:
     - fix tell cornercase [bnc#596167]
     - fix regex memory leak [bnc#557636]
     - also run h2ph on /usr/include/linux [bnc#603840]
     Affected Products: SLES9, SLE10-SP3, SLE11, openSUSE 11.1, 11.2

   - openldap2/libldap
     Several issues have been fixed in OpenLDAP:
     - specially crafted MODRDN operations can crash the OpenLDAP server
       (CVE-2010-0211 and CVE-2010-0212)
     - syncrepl might loose deletes in refreshAndPersist mode
     - replicating from a SLES11 master to a SLES10 slave can cause
       inconsistencies
     - libldap hangs with 100% CPU when referral chasing is enabled
     Affected Products: SLES9, SLE10-SP3, SLE11, openSUSE 11.0, 11.1, 11.2


   - opera
     This update of opera fixes the following vulnerabilities:
     - CVE-2010-2576: CVSS v2 Base Score: 6.8 (CWE-94):
       unexpected changes in tab focus could be used to run programs from
       the Internet, as reported by Jakob Balle and Sven Krewitt of Secunia
     - CVE-2010-3019: CVSS v2 Base Score: 9.3 (CWE-119):
       heap buffer overflow in HTML5 canvas could be used to execute
       arbitrary code, as reported by Kuzzcc
     - CVE-2010-3020: CVSS v2 Base Score: 5.0 (CWE-264):
       news feed preview could subscribe to feeds without interaction, as
       reported by Alexios Fakos
     - CVE-2010-3021: CVSS v2 Base Score: 4.3 (CWE-399):
       remote attackers could trigger a remote denial of service (CPU
       consumption and application hang) via an animated PNG image
     Affected Products: openSUSE 11.1, 11.2, 11.3

   - freetype2/libfreetype6
     This update of freetype2 fixes several vulnerabilities that could lead
     to remote system compromise by executing arbitrary code with user
     privileges:
     - CVE-2010-1797: stack-based buffer overflow while processing CFF opcodes
     - CVE-2010-2497: integer underflow
     - CVE-2010-2498: invalid free
     - CVE-2010-2499: buffer overflow
     - CVE-2010-2500: integer overflow
     - CVE-2010-2519: heap buffer overflow
     - CVE-2010-2520: heap buffer overflow

     - CVE-2010-2541: buffer overflow in ftmulti demo program
     - CVE-2010-2805: improper bounds checking
     - CVE-2010-2806: improper bounds checking
     - CVE-2010-2807: improper type comparisons
     - CVE-2010-2808: memory corruption flaw by processing certain LWFN fonts
     Affected Products: SLES9, SLE10-SP3, SLE11, openSUSE 11.1, 11.2, 11.3

   - java-1_6_0-openjdk
     icedtea included in java-1_6_0-openjdk was updated to version 1.8.1
     which fixes two security issues:
     - CVE-2010-2783: IcedTea 'Extended JNLP Services' arbitrary file access
     - CVE-2010-2548: IcedTea Incomplete property access check for unsigned
                      applications
     The new version also fixes many non-security bugs. For details please
     see http://blog.fuseyism.com/index.php/2010/07/28/icedtea6-181-released/
     Affected Products: openSUSE 11.1, 11.2, 11.3

3) Authenticity Verification and Additional Information

  - Announcement authenticity verification:

    SUSE security announcements are published via mailing lists and on Web
    sites. The authenticity and integrity of a SUSE security announcement is
    guaranteed by a cryptographic signature in each announcement. All SUSE
    security announcements are published with a valid signature.

    To verify the signature of the announcement, save it as text into a file
    and run the command

      gpg --verify 

    replacing  with the name of the file containing the announcement.
    The output for a valid signature looks like:

      gpg: Signature made  using RSA key ID 3D25D3D9
      gpg: Good signature from "SuSE Security Team "

    where  is replaced by the date the document was signed.

    If the security team's key is not contained in your key ring, you can
    import it from the first installation CD. To import the key, use the
    command

      gpg --import gpg-pubkey-3d25d3d9-36e12d04.asc

  - Package authenticity verification:

    SUSE update packages are available on many mirror FTP servers all over the
    world. While this service is considered valuable and important to the free
    and open source software community, the authenticity and integrity of a
    package needs to be verified to ensure that it has not been tampered with.

    The internal RPM package signatures provide an easy way to verify the
    authenticity of an RPM package. Use the command

      rpm -v --checksig 

    to verify the signature of the package, replacing  with the
    filename of the RPM package downloaded. The package is unmodified if it
    contains a valid signature from build@suse.de with the key ID 9C800ACA.

    This key is automatically imported into the RPM database (on RPMv4-based
    distributions) and the gpg key ring of 'root' during installation. You can
    also find it on the first installation CD and included at the end of this
    announcement.

  - SUSE runs two security mailing lists to which any interested party may
    subscribe:

    opensuse-security@opensuse.org
        -   General Linux and SUSE security discussion.
            All SUSE security announcements are sent to this list.
            To subscribe, send an e-mail to
                .

    opensuse-security-announce@opensuse.org
        -   SUSE's announce-only mailing list.
            Only SUSE's security announcements are sent to this list.
            To subscribe, send an e-mail to
                .
