Debian DLA-2613-1 : underscore security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 148275

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

node-underscore and libjs-underscore are vulnerable to Arbitrary Code Execution via the template function, particulary when a variable property is passed as an argument as it is not sanitized.

For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version 1.8.3~dfsg-1+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your underscore packages.

For the detailed security status of underscore please refer to its security tracker page at:
https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/underscore

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected libjs-underscore, and node-underscore packages.
