high Nessus Plugin ID 150106
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

This update for postgresql13 fixes the following issues :

Upgrade to version 13.3 :

CVE-2021-32027: Fixed integer overflows in array subscripting calculations (bsc#1185924).

CVE-2021-32028: Fixed mishandling of junk columns in INSERT ... ON CONFLICT ... UPDATE target lists (bsc#1185925).

CVE-2021-32029: Fixed possibly-incorrect computation of UPDATE ...
RETURNING outputs for joined cross-partition updates (bsc#1185926).

Don't use %_stop_on_removal, because it was meant to be private and got removed from openSUSE. %_restart_on_update is also private, but still supported and needed for now (bsc#1183168).

Re-enable build of the llvmjit subpackage on SLE, but it will only be delivered on PackageHub for now (bsc#1183118).

Disable icu for PostgreSQL 10 (and older) on TW (bsc#1179945).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
