The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
glibc has been updated to fix one security issue and several bugs : Security issue fixed : - Fix crashes on invalid input in IBM gconv modules (CVE-2014-6040, CVE-2012-6656) - Fixed a stack overflow during hosts parsing (CVE-2013-4357) Bugs fixed : - don't touch user-controlled stdio locks in forked child (bsc#864081, GLIBC BZ #12847) - Fix infinite loop in check_pf (bsc#909053, GLIBC BZ #12926) - Add check for RTLD_DEEPBIND environment variable to disable deepbinding of NSS modules (bsc#888860) - Fix infinite loop in check_pf (bsc#909053, GLIBC BZ #12926) Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
