Debian DLA-3033-1 : smarty3 - LTS security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 161688

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote Debian 9 host has a package installed that is affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the dla-3033 advisory.

- Smarty is a template engine for PHP, facilitating the separation of presentation (HTML/CSS) from application logic. Prior to versions 3.1.45 and 4.1.1, template authors could inject php code by choosing a malicious {block} name or {include} file name. Sites that cannot fully trust template authors should upgrade to versions 3.1.45 or 4.1.1 to receive a patch for this issue. There are currently no known workarounds. (CVE-2022-29221)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade the smarty3 packages.

For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version 3.1.31+20161214.1.c7d42e4+selfpack1-2+deb9u6.
