Affected Packages:
uwsgi
Vulnerable:
Yes
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 889753.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2018-6758.
More information:

It was discovered that the uwsgi_expand_path function in utils.c in Unbit uWSGI, an application container server, has a stack-based buffer overflow via a large directory length that can cause a denial-of-service (application crash) or stack corruption.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.3+dfsg-5+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your uwsgi packages.
