Debian DSA-4234-1 : lava-server - security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 110666


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


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.


Upgrade the lava-server packages.

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