Debian DSA-4848-1 : golang-1.11 - security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 146371
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

Multiple security issues were discovered in the implementation of the Go programming language, which could result in denial of service and the P-224 curve implementation could generate incorrect outputs.

Solution

Upgrade the golang-1.11 packages.

For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in version 1.11.6-1+deb10u4.
