The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


The remote openSUSE 15 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the openSUSE- SU-2024:0130-1 advisory.

- Rustls is a modern TLS library written in Rust. `rustls::ConnectionCommon::complete_io` could fall into an infinite loop based on network input. When using a blocking rustls server, if a client send a `close_notify` message immediately after `client_hello`, the server's `complete_io` will get in an infinite loop. This vulnerability is fixed in 0.23.5, 0.22.4, and 0.21.11. (CVE-2024-32650)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Update the affected git-cliff, git-cliff-bash-completion, git-cliff-fish-completion and / or git-cliff-zsh-completion packages.
