Synopsis

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

Description

Jacob Baines discovered a flaw in the handling of the DSI Opensession command in Netatalk, an implementation of the AppleTalk Protocol Suite, allowing an unauthenticated user to execute arbitrary code with root privileges.

Solution

Upgrade the netatalk packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 2.2.5-2+deb9u1.
