Debian DSA-4169-1 : pcs - security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 109003


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


Cedric Buissart from Red Hat discovered an information disclosure bug in pcs, a pacemaker command line interface and GUI. The REST interface normally doesn't allow passing --debug parameter to prevent information leak, but the check wasn't sufficient.


Upgrade the pcs packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 0.9.155+dfsg-2+deb9u1.
