Debian DLA-148-1 : sympa security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 82131

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security 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.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected sympa package.
