SuSE 11.1 Security Update : Postfix (SAT Patch Number 4177)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 53529


The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.


The following bug has been fixed :

- Postfix did not clear the receive buffer after the STARTTLS command. A man-in-the middle could therefore inject commands in the unencrypted stream that get interpreted in the encrypted phase after STARTTLS.


Apply SAT patch number 4177.
