Debian DSA-4004-1 : jackson-databind - security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 104057

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Solution

Upgrade the jackson-databind packages.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 2.4.2-2+deb8u1.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 2.8.6-1+deb9u1.
