Debian DLA-1410-1 : python-pysaml2 security update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 110819
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionPysaml2, a Python implementation of the Security Assertion Markup Language, would accept any password when run with Python optimizations enabled. This allows attackers to log in as any user without knowing their password.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', this issue has been fixed in version 2.0.0-1+deb8u2.
We recommend that you upgrade your python-pysaml2 packages.
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpgrade the affected python-pysaml2, and python-pysaml2-doc packages.
