openSUSE Security Update : privoxy (openSUSE-2015-115)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

privoxy was updated to version 3.0.23 to fix three security issues.

These security issues were fixed :

- Fixed a DoS issue in case of client requests with
incorrect chunk-encoded body. When compiled with
assertions enabled (the default) they could previously
cause Privoxy to abort() (CVE-2015-1380).

- Fixed multiple segmentation faults and memory leaks in
the pcrs code. This fix also increases the chances that
an invalid pcrs command is rejected as such

- Client requests with body that can't be delivered no
longer cause pipelined requests behind them to be
rejected as invalid (CVE-2015-1382).
