critical Nessus Plugin ID 127930

Synopsis

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

Description

Three vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Go programming language; 'net/url' accepted some invalid hosts in URLs which could result in authorisation bypass in some applications and the HTTP/2 implementation was susceptible to denial of service.

Solution

Upgrade the golang-1.11 packages.

For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in version 1.11.6-1+deb10u1.
