Debian DSA-2794-1 : spip - several vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 70981
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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


Several vulnerabilities have been found in SPIP, a website engine for publishing, resulting in cross-site request forgery on logout, cross-site scripting on author page, and PHP injection.


Upgrade the spip packages.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 2.1.1-3squeeze7.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 2.1.17-1+deb7u2.
