Debian DLA-3360-1 : ruby-sidekiq - LTS security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 172486


The remote Debian host is missing one or more security-related updates.


The remote Debian 10 host has a package installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the dla-3360 advisory.

- Sidekiq through 5.1.3 and 6.x through 6.2.0 allows XSS via the queue name of the live-poll feature when Internet Explorer is used. (CVE-2021-30151)

- In api.rb in Sidekiq before 5.2.10 and 6.4.0, there is no limit on the number of days when requesting stats for the graph. This overloads the system, affecting the Web UI, and makes it unavailable to users.

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


Upgrade the ruby-sidekiq packages.

For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version 5.2.3+dfsg-1+deb10u1.
