- Date Reported:
- 16 Oct 2020
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2020-24379, CVE-2020-24916.
- More information:
Two vulnerabilities were discovered in yaws, a high performance HTTP 1.1 webserver written in Erlang.
The WebDAV implementation is prone to a XML External Entity (XXE) injection vulnerability.
The CGI implementation does not properly sanitize CGI requests allowing a remote attacker to execute arbitrary shell commands via specially crafted CGI executable names.
For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in version 2.0.6+dfsg-1+deb10u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your yaws packages.
