SuSE9 Security Update : Postfix (YOU Patch Number 12707)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 53868
SynopsisThe remote SuSE 9 host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionThe following bugs have been fixed :
- Remote attackers could potentially exploit a memory corruption issue in postfix' SASL implementation to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2011-1720)
- Also 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.
SolutionApply YOU patch number 12707.
