SUSE SLES11 Security Update : mysql (SUSE-SU-2016:1618-1) (Logjam)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 93157


The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.


This update for mysql fixes the following issues :

- bsc#959724: fix incorrect usage of sprintf/strcpy that caused possible buffer overflow issues at various places

On SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP4 this fix was not yet shipped :

- Increase the key length (to 2048 bits) used in vio/viosslfactories.c for creating Diffie-Hellman keys (Logjam Attack) [bnc#934789] [CVE-2015-4000]

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.
