Debian DSA-3134-1 : sympa - security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 80872
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.

Synopsis

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

Description

A vulnerability has been discovered in the web interface of sympa, a mailing list manager. An attacker could take advantage of this flaw in the newsletter posting area, which allows sending to a list, or to oneself, any file located on the server filesystem and readable by the sympa user.

Solution

Upgrade the sympa packages.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 6.1.11~dfsg-5+deb7u2.

For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), this problem will be fixed soon.
