Description

It was discovered that libsoup did not properly validate its input when processing SoupServer requests. A remote attacker could exploit this to access files via directory traversal.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
