    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-3877 CVE-2019-3878
    Debian Bug     : 925197
    
    Several issues have been discovered in Apache module auth_mellon, which
    provides SAML 2.0 authentication.
    
    CVE-2019-3877
    
        It was possible to bypass the redirect URL checking on logout, so
        the module could be used as an open redirect facility.
    
    CVE-2019-3878
    
        When mod_auth_mellon is used in an Apache configuration which
        serves as a remote proxy with the http_proxy module, it was
        possible to bypass authentication by sending SAML ECP headers.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.12.0-2+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libapache2-mod-auth-mellon packages.
