Debian DSA-3134-1 : sympa - security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 80872


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


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.


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.
