Debian DLA-1291-1 : tzdata new upstream version

High Nessus Plugin ID 106982

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

This update includes the changes in tzdata 2018c. Notable changes are :

- São Tomé and Príncipe switched from +00 to +01.

- Brazil's DST will now start on November's first Sunday.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 2018c-0+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your tzdata 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.

Solution

Upgrade the affected tzdata, and tzdata-java packages.
