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

medium Nessus Plugin ID 146371


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


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.


Upgrade the golang-1.11 packages.

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