    Package        : redis
    CVE ID         : CVE-2013-7458
    Debian Bug     : 832460
    
    It was discovered that redis, a persistent key-value database, did not
    properly protect redis-cli history files: they were created by default
    with world-readable permissions.
    
    Users and systems administrators may want to proactively change
    permissions on existing ~/rediscli_history files, instead of waiting
    for the updated redis-cli to do so the next time it is run.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:2.8.17-1+deb8u5.
    
    For the testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions, this
    problem has been fixed in version 2:3.2.1-4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your redis packages.
