solutions Security update for i4l SuSE Linux Maintenance Web (bd589817082526cd75542ff802f69daa)
/usr/sbin/ipppdISDN ppp daemon program is installed setuid root
by default on SuSE systems. If so-inclined, a local attacker belonging to the
group dialout may abuse these privileges by taking advantage of format string
errors and buffer overflows in ipppd found by Sebastian Krahmer, SuSE
Security. These bugs are fixed with this update. While it does not harm, it
should not be necessary to restart the running instances of ipppd for the
update packages to become effective.
