The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
It was discovered that libsoup did not properly validate its input
when processing SoupServer requests. A remote attacker could exploit
this to access files via directory traversal.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
Update the affected libsoup2.4-1 package.
