    Package        : sympa
    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-1000550
    
    Michael Kaczmarczik discovered a vulnerability in the web interface
    template editing function of Sympa, a mailing list manager. Owner and
    listmasters could use this flaw to create or modify arbitrary files in
    the server with privileges of sympa user or owner view list config files
    even if edit_list.conf prohibits it.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 6.2.16~dfsg-3+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your sympa packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of sympa please refer to its security
    tracker page at:
