Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes the following security issues :

- denial-of-service vulnerability, which can be triggered
by an IKEv2 Key Exchange payload, that contains the
Diffie-Hellman group 1025 (bsc#910491,CVE-2014-9221).

- Applied an upstream patch reverting to store algorithms
in the registration order again as ordering them by
identifier caused weaker algorithms to be proposed first
by default (bsc#897512).
