Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201406-03 (Fail2ban: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Fail2ban. Please review
  the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact :

A remote attacker could send a crafted URL to a website which, when
  parsed by Fail2ban, would deny a specific IP address. Also, errors in
  regular expressions within certain filters can cause arbitrary IP
  addresses to be banned. Furthermore, a local attacker could perform
  symlink attacks to overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the
  user running the application.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
