    Debian Bug     : 959684
    
    The update for salt for the oldstable distribution (stretch) released as
    DSA 4676-1 contained an incomplete fix to address CVE-2020-11651 and
    CVE-2020-11652. Updated salt packages are now available to correct this
    issue. For reference, the original advisory text follows.
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in salt, a powerful remote
    execution manager, which could result in retrieve of user tokens from
    the salt master, execution of arbitrary commands on salt minions,
    arbitrary directory access to authenticated users or arbitrary code
    execution on salt-api hosts.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed
    in version 2016.11.2+ds-1+deb9u4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your salt packages.
