Debian DSA-4181-1 : roundcube - security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 109410
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

Andrea Basile discovered that the 'archive' plugin in roundcube, a skinnable AJAX based webmail solution for IMAP servers, does not properly sanitize a user-controlled parameter, allowing a remote attacker to inject arbitrary IMAP commands and perform malicious actions.

Solution

Upgrade the roundcube packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 1.2.3+dfsg.1-4+deb9u2.
