Description

It was discovered that libsoup, a HTTP library implementation in C, is not properly validating input when processing requests made to SoupServer. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw to access system files via a directory traversal attack.

For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version 2.4.1-2+lenny1.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 2.30.2-1+squeeze1.

For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 2.34.3-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.34.3-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libsoup2.4 packages.
