SuSE 10 Security Update : Postfix (ZYPP Patch Number 7387)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 53531


The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.


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 ZYPP patch number 7387.
