The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


Percona Toolkit and XtraBackup were updated to fix bugs and security issues.

Percona XtraBackup was vulnerable to MITM attack which could allow exfiltration of MySQL configuration information via the
--version-check option. [boo#919298] CVE-2015-1027 lp#1408375.

The openSUSE package has the version check disabled by default.

Percona XtraBackup was updated to version 2.2.9 :

- xtrabackup_galera_info file isn't overwritten during the Galera auto-recovery. lp#1418584.

- Percona XtraBackup now sets the maximum supported session value for lock_wait_timeout variable to prevent unnecessary timeouts when the global value is changed from the default. lp#1410339.

- New option --backup-locks, enabled by default, has been implemented to control if backup locks will be used even if they are supported by the server. To disable backup locks innobackupex should be run with innobackupex
