- Date Reported:
- 25 Jun 2020
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 963179.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2020-14929.
- More information:
Alpine before 2.23 silently proceeds to use an insecure connection after a /tls is sent in certain circumstances involving PREAUTH, which is a less secure behavior than the alternative of closing the connection and letting the user decide what they would like to do.
For Debian 8
Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 2.11+dfsg1-3+deb8u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your alpine packages.
