FreeBSD : py-Scrapy -- cookie injection vulnerability (a5403af6-225e-48ba-b233-bd95ad26434a)

high Nessus Plugin ID 180380



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


The version of FreeBSD installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the a5403af6-225e-48ba-b233-bd95ad26434a advisory.

- Responses from domain names whose public domain name suffix contains 1 or more periods (e.g. responses from ``, given its public domain name suffix is ``) are able to set cookies that are included in requests to any other domain sharing the same domain name suffix.

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


Update the affected packages.
