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 openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

An unprivileged, authenticated PostgreSQL user could create a table which references functions with malicious content. Maintenance operations carried out be the database superuser could execute such functions (CVE-2009-4136).

Embedded null bytes in the common name of SSL certificates could bypass certificate hostname checks (CVE-2009-4034).

postgresql was updated to the next upstream patchlevel update which also includes several bugfixes. See the package changelog for details.

Solution

Update the affected postgresql packages.
