openSUSE Security Update : PackageKit (openSUSE-SU-2013:0381-1)

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


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

PackageKit was fixed to add a patch to forbid update to downgrade
(bnc#804983)

As the update operation is allowed for logged in regular users, they
could install old package versions which might have been still
affected by already fixed security problems.
