WARN: Remote Root Exploit in SuSE 9.1 Live CD

It has recently been identified that SuSE 9.1 Live edition (a bootable CD-ROM edition) allows passwordless remote root logins via ssh due to a configuration error. This includes the Live CD that is included with SuSE 9.1 Personal Edition.

All SuSE 9.1 Live users should see the full advisory for a temporary work around as well as a URL for the fixed version.
