openSUSE Security Update : postfix (openSUSE-SU-2011:0389-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

postfix did not clear the receive buffer after the STARTTLS command. A
man-in-the middle could therefore inject commands in the unencrypted
stream that get interpreted in the encrypted phase after STARTTLS
(CVE-2011-0411).
