1)  problem description, brief discussion, solution, upgrade information

    The PAM module (and server) pam_smb allows users of Linux systems to
    be authenticated by querying an NT server.
    Dave Airlie <airlied@samba.org> informed us about a bug in the
    authentication code of pam_smb that allows a remote attacker to gain
    access to a system using pam_smb by issuing a too long password string.

    Please download the update package for your distribution and verify its
    integrity by the methods listed in section 3) of this announcement.
    Then, install the package using the command "rpm -Fhv file.rpm" to apply
    the update.
    Our maintenance customers are being notified individually. The packages
    are being offered to install from the maintenance web.

2)  Pending vulnerabilities in SuSE Distributions and Workarounds:

    - gdm2
      Due to a bug in GDM it is possible for local users to read any text
      file on a system by creating a symlink from ~/.xsession-errors.
      Updated packages will be available on our FTP servers soon.

    - whois
      The client tool whois is vulnerable to several buffer overflows
      while processing its command-line arguments. In conjunction with using
      untrusted data from remote sources as input, like using whois in a CGI
      script and so on, this buffer overflows may be abused to compromise
      a system.
      New whois packages are built and will be released at the usual
      locations as soon as quality assurance is passed.

    - node
      The simple hamradio front-end node is vulnerable to buffer overflows
      and format-string bugs.
      New packages will be available soon.

    - postgresql
      The SQL database server postgresql of version 7.3.x prior 7.3.4 is
      vulnerable to buffer overflow attacks.
      New packages will be available soon.

    - gkrellm
      The server component of the gkrellm monitoring package is
      vulnerable to a buffer overflow.
      News packages will be available soon.

3)  standard appendix: authenticity verification, additional information

  - Package authenticity verification:

    SuSE update packages are available on many mirror ftp servers all over
    the world. While this service is being considered valuable and important
    to the free and open source software community, many users wish to be
    sure about the origin of the package and its content before installing
    the package. There are two verification methods that can be used
    independently from each other to prove the authenticity of a downloaded
    file or rpm package:
    1) md5sums as provided in the (cryptographically signed) announcement.
    2) using the internal gpg signatures of the rpm package.

    1) execute the command
        md5sum <name-of-the-file.rpm>
       after you downloaded the file from a SuSE ftp server or its mirrors.
       Then, compare the resulting md5sum with the one that is listed in the
       announcement. Since the announcement containing the checksums is
       cryptographically signed (usually using the key security@suse.de),
       the checksums show proof of the authenticity of the package.
       We disrecommend to subscribe to security lists which cause the
       email message containing the announcement to be modified so that
       the signature does not match after transport through the mailing
       list software.
       Downsides: You must be able to verify the authenticity of the
       announcement in the first place. If RPM packages are being rebuilt
       and a new version of a package is published on the ftp server, all
       md5 sums for the files are useless.

    2) rpm package signatures provide an easy way to verify the authenticity
       of an rpm package. Use the command
        rpm -v --checksig <file.rpm>
       to verify the signature of the package, where <file.rpm> is the
       filename of the rpm package that you have downloaded. Of course,
       package authenticity verification can only target an un-installed rpm
       package file.
       Prerequisites:
        a) gpg is installed
        b) The package is signed using a certain key. The public part of this
           key must be installed by the gpg program in the directory
           ~/.gnupg/ under the user's home directory who performs the
           signature verification (usually root). You can import the key
           that is used by SuSE in rpm packages for SuSE Linux by saving
           this announcement to a file ("announcement.txt") and
           running the command (do "su -" to be root):
            gpg --batch; gpg < announcement.txt | gpg --import
           SuSE Linux distributions version 7.1 and thereafter install the
           key "build@suse.de" upon installation or upgrade, provided that
           the package gpg is installed. The file containing the public key
           is placed at the top-level directory of the first CD (pubring.gpg)
           and at ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/pubring.gpg-build.suse.de .


  - SuSE runs two security mailing lists to which any interested party may
