The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
glibc has been updated to fix four security issues : - CVE-2014-0475: Directory traversal in locale environment handling (bnc#887022) - CVE-2014-7817: wordexp failed to honour WRDE_NOCMD (bsc#906371) - CVE-2014-9402: Avoid infinite loop in nss_dns getnetbyname (bsc#910599) - CVE-2015-1472: Fixed buffer overflow in wscanf (bsc#916222) - CVE-2013-7423: getaddrinfo() wrote DNS queries to random file descriptors under high load. (bnc#915526) The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details. 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.
