Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update for tor updates to version and fixes the
following issues :

- a hostile hidden service could cause tor clients to
crash (boo#1016343, CVE-2016-1254)

- updated fallback directory list

- updated geoip and geoip6 to the December 7 2016 Maxmind
GeoLite2 Country database.

- When Tor leaves standby because of a new application
request, open circuits as needed to serve that request

- Clients now respond to new application stream requests
immediately when they arrive, rather than waiting up to
one second before starting to handle them
