    Package        : sympa
    CVE ID         : CVE-2020-9369 CVE-2020-10936 CVE-2020-26932 CVE-2020-29668
    Debian Bug     : 952428 961491 971904 976020
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Sympa, a mailing list
    manager, which could result in local privilege escalation, denial of
    service or unauthorized access via the SOAP API.
    
    Additionally to mitigate CVE-2020-26880 the sympa_newaliases-wrapper is
    no longer installed setuid root by default. A new Debconf question is
    introduced to allow setuid installations in setups where it is needed.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in
    version 6.2.40~dfsg-1+deb10u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your sympa packages.
