Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

curl did not detect embedded null characters in certificate names. By
using specially crafted certificates attackers could exploit that to
conduct man in the middle attacks (CVE-2009-2417).

Note the previous update that was supposed to fix the issue
accidentally lacked the actual fix which was corrected this time.
