Synopsis

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

Description

Two vulnerabilities were discovered in LAVA, a continuous integration system for deploying operating systems for running tests, which could result in information disclosure of files readable by the lavaserver system user or the execution of arbitrary code via a XMLRPC call.

Solution

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 2016.12-3.
