Debian DLA-1431-1 : ant security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 111168
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
Descriptionunzip and untar target tasks in ant allows the extraction of files
outside the target directory. A crafted zip or tar file submitted to
an Ant build could create or overwrite arbitrary files with the
privileges of the user running Ant.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version
We recommend that you upgrade your ant 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 packages.
