YOU detects which updates are required and automatically performs the necessary steps to verify and install them. Alternatively, download the update packages for your distribution manually and verify their integrity by the methods listed in Section 6 of this announcement. Then install the packages using the command rpm -Fhv <file.rpm> to apply the update, replacing <file.rpm> with the filename of the downloaded RPM package. x86 Platform: openSUSE 10.2: eea9f40b409823d691ad0e1b3daf5a82 dc5e760f067b2d1ea41be90c92517a5d 0b3638d9bfccfca0cf149df1200e6c47 d51cb9ff1cb3f5875cb4fa60b58f159b SUSE LINUX 10.1: fa3a6d10cb1a6dd801668e8881424036 a40dc8d7e29aa8bb21ecb3c348e0cc05 3bbfce9a8abf9394959348e449b35b95 869cac360c49cc15358b205923f2ee1d SUSE LINUX 10.0: f0b6bd1b56b874eb0003752cd112d6db 1722380cad796cc29d15374f7c471f09 82d7d8847f363a9e46fc9d22aa44f0c8 SUSE LINUX 9.3: 06b3af42ed8f528a306650691558301f be42160ef33ead2625b20043267c2ce2 239aa22605bbd7c89a8489fb49c51f5d Power PC Platform: openSUSE 10.2: c9611899a9bed84f006f8451dfcc44ae e539db36e921505166e238a5aa853750 0d0b60cf410588c59003d04ab0ce0b33 0445e6652c8862691426ed623db2b362 SUSE LINUX 10.1: 3d399bf2bab2611809add386b63c085a 4a0223d379107cc45ef13d59369914dd a795cd195043826ab0c9227251058905 a2c70ba35f54ff5cf7970d05940f00ee SUSE LINUX 10.0: 72520bda4b0156991ce85e34eeef90a9 9d7f48fdce0092b7e00920ead4db56dc aea7d9cfe7b9b95ddd0761bf4fce7fc1 x86-64 Platform: openSUSE 10.2: 941d4d0e8a4332e3d585b67347d3bfaf 21cbeb89fcad730aecb715d92bdc9521 edc263e07b53d019e0d686c2134dddf5 f4f8dedac060cbd33f4b480aacb05bef SUSE LINUX 10.1: 37f2af41fa077600d68df74547da4339 094c3157d83486a2fb10f0e3bb365a0a SUSE LINUX 10.0: f78215541f3b1f1af4aeba8b7414e907 SUSE LINUX 9.3: dff09a04cd253fdcf830f93aa10edf49 Sources: openSUSE 10.2: 8bdf86d5275d649f546a22c63a4b8cfb 223fff785e9e86fd5cbe0106ab1a5ddf SUSE LINUX 10.1: 38373d35abf94ec8c0a2008dd1b6fc0d 184a16b5b80bd056a9526873756b75a5 SUSE LINUX 10.0: 62ade9bd59c8da0e9b739e59a8247708 2ec8f62cf812e2ea756e618c941fbdb5 SUSE LINUX 9.3: c4444ff036405a4baa37c33b975941fa 14f7289ab7a5a2fcfd6cedf2acda628b Our maintenance customers are notified individually.

The authenticity and integrity of a SUSE security announcement is guaranteed by a cryptographic signature in each announcement. All SUSE security announcements are published with a valid signature. To verify the signature of the announcement, save it as text into a file and run the command gpg --verify <file> replacing <file> with the name of the file where you saved the announcement. The output for a valid signature looks like: gpg: Signature made <DATE> using RSA key ID 3D25D3D9 gpg: Good signature from "SuSE Security Team <>" where <DATE> is replaced by the date the document was signed. If the security team's key is not contained in your key ring, you can import it from the first installation CD. To import the key, use the command gpg --import gpg-pubkey-3d25d3d9-36e12d04.asc - Package authenticity verification: SUSE update packages are available on many mirror FTP servers all over the world. While this service is considered valuable and important to the free and open source software community, the authenticity and the integrity of a package needs to be verified to ensure that it has not been tampered with. 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) Using the internal gpg signatures of the rpm package 2) MD5 checksums as provided in this announcement 1) The internal 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, replacing <file.rpm> with the filename of the RPM package downloaded. The package is unmodified if it contains a valid signature from with the key ID 9C800ACA. This key is automatically imported into the RPM database (on RPMv4-based distributions) and the gpg key ring of 'root' during installation. You can also find it on the first installation CD and at the end of this announcement. 2) If you need an alternative means of verification, use the md5sum command to verify the authenticity of the packages. Execute the command md5sum <filename.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 SUSE security announcement. Because the announcement containing the checksums is cryptographically signed (by, the checksums show proof of the authenticity of the package if the signature of the announcement is valid. Note that the md5 sums published in the SUSE Security Announcements are valid for the respective packages only. Newer versions of these packages cannot be verified. - SUSE runs two security mailing lists to which any interested party may subscribe: - General Linux and SUSE security discussion. All SUSE security announcements are sent to this list. To subscribe, send an e-mail to <>. - SUSE's announce-only mailing list. Only SUSE's security announcements are sent to this list.
