FreeBSD : p5-Dancer -- possible to abuse session cookie values (968d1e74-1740-11e5-a643-40a8f0757fb4)

High Nessus Plugin ID 84314


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


Russell Jenkins reports :

It was possible to abuse session cookie values so that file-based session stores such as Dancer::Session::YAML or Dancer2::Session::YAML would attempt to read/write from any file on the filesystem with the same extension the file-based store uses, such as '*.yml' for the YAML stores.


Update the affected package.
