More information:

It was discovered that authenticated API users of Orthanc, a DICOM server for medical imaging, could overwrite arbitrary files and in some setups execute arbitrary code.

This update backports the option RestApiWriteToFileSystemEnabled, setting it to true in /etc/orthanc/orthanc.json restores the previous behaviour.

For the oldstable distribution (bullseye), this problem has been fixed in version 1.9.2+really1.9.1+dfsg-1+deb11u1.

For the stable distribution (bookworm), this problem has been fixed in version 1.10.1+dfsg-2+deb12u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your orthanc packages.
