Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99017


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This update to xtrabackup 2.3.7 fixes one security issue and bugs.

The following security issue was fixed :

- innobackupex and xtrabackup scripts were showing the password in the ps output when it was passed as a command line argument (boo#1026729)

The following functionality was added :

- new --remove-original option for removing the original encrypted and compressed files

- now supports -H, -h, -u and -p shortcuts for --hostname,
--datadir, --user and --password respectively

The following bugs were fixed :

- Pick up username from user's configuration file correctly

- Incremental backups did not include xtrabackup_binlog_info and xtrabackup_galera_info files

- --move-back option did not always restore out-of-datadir tablespaces to their original directories

- Incremental backup would fail with a path like ~/backup/inc_1


Update the affected xtrabackup packages.
