Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.892210
Category:Debian Local Security Checks
Title:Debian LTS: Security Advisory for apt (DLA-2210-1)
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'apt'; package(s) announced via the DLA-2210-1 advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'apt'
package(s) announced via the DLA-2210-1 advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
When normalizing ar member names by removing trailing whitespace
and slashes, an out-out-bound read can be caused if the ar member
name consists only of such characters, because the code did not
stop at 0, but would wrap around and continue reading from the
stack, without any limit.

Affected Software/OS:
'apt' package(s) on Debian Linux.

Solution:
For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version
1.0.9.8.6.

We recommend that you upgrade your apt packages.

CVSS Score:
4.3
