    Package        : sympa
    
    A vulnerability has been discovered in the web interface of sympa, a
    mailing list manager. An attacker could take advantage of this flaw in
    the newsletter posting area, which allows sending to a list, or to
    oneself, any file located on the server filesystem and readable by the
    sympa user.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 6.1.11~dfsg-5+deb7u2.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), this problem will be
    fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 6.1.23~dfsg-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your sympa packages.
