openSUSE Security Update : postfix (postfix-1969)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

The value of SMTPD_LISTEN_REMOTE accidentally defaulted to 'yes'. The
postfix smtp daemon therefore was reachable over the network by
default. This update therefore resets the value to 'no' in
/etc/sysconfig/mail. If you intentionally want postfix to listen for
remote connection you need to manually set it to 'yes' again.

This update also fixes a problem where the relay database was not
created and postfix refused to start.

Solution :

Update the affected postfix packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
