The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

An unprivileged, authenticated PostgreSQL user could create a table
which references functions with malicious content. Maintenance
operations carried out be the database superuser could execute such
functions (CVE-2009-4136).

Embedded null bytes in the common name of SSL certificates could
bypass certificate hostname checks (CVE-2009-4034).
