Debian DLA-1416-1 : libsoup2.4 security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 110946


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


It was discovered that the Soup HTTP library performed insuffient validation of cookie requests which could result in an out-of-bounds memory read.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 2.48.0-1+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your libsoup2.4 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.


Upgrade the affected packages.
