Yes, it’s pretty much as it sounds, but it’s ambiguous.
The Novell BorderManager 3.8 network administration software includes a Client Trust agent for network clients, in which a security vulnerability has been discovered by the Zero Day Initiative (ZDI).
There’s a bit of a flamebait here. Indeed, it’s just a technical flaw and it’s not even a key Linux product, but Novell has some more critical flaws which will actually affect its future. Examples include:
- Microsoft’s betrayal against Novell
- Novell’s financial dependence on a Microsoft lifeline
- Departure of many SUSE developers
- Bad image
All of the above would have been avoid if Novell did not sign an insane deal.
