Debian DLA-1294-1 : golang security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 106985
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionIt was discovered that there was an arbitrary command execution vulnerability in the Go programming language.
The 'go get' implementation did not correctly validate 'import path' statements for '://' which allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary OS commands via a crafted website.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', this issue has been fixed in golang version 2:1.0.2-1.1+deb7u3.
We recommend that you upgrade your golang packages. The Debian LTS team would like to thank Abhijith PA for preparing this update.
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.
