Package : redis CVE ID : CVE-2013-7458 Debian Bug : 832460

It was discovered that redis, a persistent key-value database, did not properly protect redis-cli history files: they were created by default with world-readable permissions.

Users and systems administrators may want to proactively change permissions on existing ~/rediscli_history files, instead of waiting for the updated redis-cli to do so the next time it is run.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 2:2.8.17-1+deb8u5.

For the testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions, this problem has been fixed in version 2:3.2.1-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your redis packages.
