openSUSE Security Update : postfix (openSUSE-SU-2011:0389-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 53792


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


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 (CVE-2011-0411).


Update the affected postfix packages.
