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

    The Cyrus SASL library provides an authentication API for mail clients
    and servers.
    A format bug was found in one of the logging functions, that could be
    used by an attacker to gain access to a machine or to acquire higher
    privileges.

    There is no known temporary fix, so please update your system with
    the new RPMs from our FTP server.

    Download the update package from locations described below and install
    the package with the command:
        rpm -Uhv file.rpm
    The md5sum for each file is in the line below. You can verify the
    integrity of the rpm files using the command:
        rpm --checksig --nogpg file.rpm
    independently from the md5 signatures below.

2)  Pending vulnerabilities in SuSE Distributions and Workarounds:

    - openssh
      After stabilizing the openssh package, updates for the distributions
      6.4-7.2 are currently being prepared. The update packages fix a security
      problem related to the recently discovered problems with source ip
      based access restrictions in a user's ~/.ssh/authorized_keys2 file.
      The packages will appear shortly on our ftp servers. Please note that
      packages for the distributions 6.3 and up including 7.0 containing
      cryptographic software are located on the German ftp server ftp.suse.de,
      all other packages can be found on ftp.suse.com at the usual location.
      We will issue a dedicated Security announcement for the openssh package.

    - The ziptool program runs setuid root in the easy permission mode and
      contains an overflow which allows local attackers to gain root
      privileges. A zipdrive must be configured and a zipdisk being inserted
      in order to exploit the bug. The overflow has been fixed. Please update
      your packages.

    - The ncpfs package containing the setuid root programs ncpmount and
      ncpumount was vulnerable to local bufferoverflow attacks. The package
      has been fixed.
