    Package        : roundup
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-6276
    
    Ralf Schlatterbeck discovered an information leak in roundup, a
    web-based issue tracking system. An authenticated attacker could use it
    to see sensitive details about other users, including their hashed
    password.
    
    After applying the update, which will fix the shipped templates, the
    site administrator should ensure the instanced versions (in
    /var/lib/roundup usually) are also updated, either by patching them
    manually or by recreating them.
    
    More info can be found in the upstream documentation at
    http://www.roundup-tracker.org/docs/upgrading.html#user-data-visibility
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
    in version 1.4.20-1.1+deb7u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.20-1.1+deb8u1.
    
    For the testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) distribution, this problem has not
    yet been fixed.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your roundup packages.
