Debian Security Advisory
DLA-1107-1 bzr -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 23 Sep 2017
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 709068, Bug 874429.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2013-2099, CVE-2017-14176.
- More information:
Bazaar bundles SSL certificate checking code from Python, which had a bug that could cause a denial of service via resource consumption through multiple wildcards in certificate hostnames.
Adam Collard found that host names in 'bzr+ssh' URLs were not parsed correctly by Bazaar, allowing remote attackers to run arbitrary code by tricking a user into a maliciously crafted URL.
For Debian 7
Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 2.6.0~bzr6526-1+deb7u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your bzr packages.
