Debian DLA-1249-2 : smarty3 regression update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 106205


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


It was previously discovered that there was a code-injection vulnerability in smarty3, a PHP template engine. A via specially crafted filename in comments could result in arbitrary code execution.

However, the fix in 3.1.10-2+deb7u2 was incorrect. For Debian 7 'Wheezy', this regression has been addressed in smarty3 version 3.1.10-2+deb7u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your smarty3 packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Upgrade the affected smarty3 package.
