    Package        : passenger
    CVE ID         : CVE-2017-16355
    Debian Bug     : 884463
    
    An arbitrary file read vulnerability was discovered in passenger, a web
    application server. A local user allowed to deploy an application to
    passenger, can take advantage of this flaw by creating a symlink from
    the REVISION file to an arbitrary file on the system and have its
    content displayed through passenger-status.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.0.30-1+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your passenger packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of passenger please refer to its
    security tracker page at:
