Debian DSA-3518-1 : spip - security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 89972
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 were found in SPIP, a website engine for publishing, resulting in code injection.

- CVE-2016-3153 g0uZ et sambecks, from team root-me, discovered that arbitrary PHP code could be injected when adding content.

- CVE-2016-3154 Gilles Vincent discovered that deserializing untrusted content could result in arbitrary objects injection.


Upgrade the spip packages.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 2.1.17-1+deb7u5.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 3.0.17-2+deb8u2.
