Low Nessus Plugin ID 97281


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


postfixadmin was updated to 3.0.2 to fix the following issues :

- PostfixAdmin 3.0.2 :

- SECURITY: don't allow to delete protected aliases (CVE-2017-5930, boo#1024211)

- fix VacationHandler for PostgreSQL

- AliasHandler: restrict mailbox subquery to allowed and specified domains to improve performance on setups with lots of mailboxes

- allow switching between dovecot:* password schemes while still accepting passwords hashed using the previous dovecot:* scheme

- FetchmailHandler: use a valid date as default for 'date'

- fix date formatting in non-english languages when using PostgreSQL

- various small fixes

- PostfixAdmin 3.0 :

- add sqlite backend option

- add configurable smtp helo (CONF['smtp_client'])

- new translation: ro (Romanian)

- language update: tw, cs, de

- fix escaping in gen_show_status() (could be used to DOS list-virtual by creating a mail address with special chars)

- add CSRF protection for POST requests

- list.tpl: base edit/editactive/delete links in list.tpl on $RAW_item to avoid double escaping, and fix some corner cases

- fix db_quota_text() for postgresql (concat() vs. ||)

- change default date for 'created' and 'updated' columns from 0000-00-00 (which causes problems with MySQL strict mode) to 2000-01-01

- allow punicode even in TLDs

- update Smarty to 3.1.29

- add checks to login.php and cli to ensure database layout is up to date

- whitelist '-1' as valid value for postfixadmin-cli
