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.
