SuSE releases ypserv advisory.
Several vulnerability exists: ypserv prior 1.3.9 allows an administrator in the NIS domain to inject password tables; rpc.yppasswd prior 18.104.22.168 has got a buffer overflow in the md5 hash generation [SuSE linux is unaffected by this, other linux falvors are]; rpc.yppasswdd prior 1.3.9 allows users to change GECO and login shell values of other users.
