Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

Various packages included vulnerable parsers generated by 'flex'.

This update provides a fixed 'flex' package and also rebuilds of packages that might have security issues caused by the auto generated code.

Flex itself was updated to fix a buffer overflow in the generated scanner (bsc#990856, CVE-2016-6354)

Packages that were rebuilt with the fixed flex :

- at

- libbonobo

- netpbm

- openslp

- sgmltool

- virtuoso

Some more packages might also need to be rebuild to receive a new flex parser, but will be released later.

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12:Update update project.

Solution

Update the affected flex / at / libbonobo / etc packages.
