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 1.9.4-3+deb8u1.
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.
