    Package        : yaws
    CVE ID         : CVE-2020-24379 CVE-2020-24916
    
    Two vulnerabilities were discovered in yaws, a high performance HTTP 1.1
    webserver written in Erlang.
    
    CVE-2020-24379
    
        The WebDAV implementation is prone to a XML External Entity (XXE)
        injection vulnerability.
    
    CVE-2020-24916
    
        The CGI implementation does not properly sanitize CGI requests
        allowing a remote attacker to execute arbitrary shell commands via
        specially crafted CGI executable names.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.0.6+dfsg-1+deb10u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your yaws packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of yaws please refer to its security
    tracker page at:
