Debian DSA-3545-1 : cgit - security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 90410


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


Several vulnerabilities were discovered in cgit, a fast web frontend for git repositories written in C. A remote attacker can take advantage of these flaws to perform cross-site scripting, header injection or denial of service attacks.


Upgrade the cgit packages.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 0.10.2.git2.0.1-3+deb8u1.
