Debian DSA-4379-1 : golang-1.7 - security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 121557
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

A vulnerability was discovered in the implementation of the P-521 and P-384 elliptic curves, which could result in denial of service and in some cases key recovery.

In addition this update fixes a vulnerability in 'go get', which could result in the execution of arbitrary shell commands.

Solution

Upgrade the golang-1.7 packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 1.7.4-2+deb9u1.
