This issue has been discussed in vuln-dev (2001-01-26), see:
Posted also on suse security list, and aparently overlooked.
Yes, it was overread on suse-security () suse com, the discussion list.
SuSE's security contact is security () suse de
There is no guarantee that all of the interesting postings on
suse-security () suse com can be read. :-(
The man package that ships with SuSe Linux ( at least versions 6.1 throught
7.0 ) has a format string vulnerability. Also debian 2.2r2 ( at least ), is
confirmed to have the same problem.
We'll fix it. As soon as we can.
Thanks for the note.
