Medium Nessus Plugin ID 119490

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

This update for postgresql94 to 9.4.19 fixes the following security
issue :

- CVE-2018-10915: libpq failed to properly reset its
internal state between connections. If an affected
version of libpq was used with 'host' or 'hostaddr'
connection parameters from untrusted input, attackers
could have bypassed client-side connection security
features, obtain access to higher privileged connections
or potentially cause other impact SQL injection, by
causing the PQescape() functions to malfunction
(bsc#1104199).

A dump/restore is not required for this update unless you use the
functions query_to_xml, cursor_to_xml, cursor_to_xmlschema,
query_to_xmlschema, and query_to_xml_and_xmlschema. In this case
please see the first entry of
https://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.4/static/release-9-4-18.html

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12:Update update project.

Solution
