Description

zypp-refresh-patches in zypper in SUSE openSUSE 10.2, 10.3, and 11.0 does not ask the user before accepting repository keys, which allows remote repositories to cause a denial of service (package data corruption) via a spoofed key.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-libzypp
  • suse-upgrade-libzypp-devel
  • suse-upgrade-suse-release
  • suse-upgrade-yast2-pkg-bindings
  • suse-upgrade-yast2-pkg-bindings-devel-doc
  • suse-upgrade-zypper

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
