The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
GNU parallel was updated to version 20150422 to fix one security
issue, several bugs and add functionality.
The following vulnerability was fixed :
- A local attacker could make a user overwrite one of his
own files with a single byte when using --compress,
--tmux, --pipe, --cat or --fifo when guessing random
file names within a time window of 15 ms. [boo#928664]
In addition, the update to 20150422 adds a number of bug fixes,
improvements and new features.
