    CVE ID         : CVE-2020-16846 CVE-2020-17490 CVE-2020-25592
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in salt, a powerful remote
    execution manager. The flaws could result in authentication bypass and
    invocation of Salt SSH, creation of certificates with weak file
    permissions via the TLS execution module or shell injections with the
    Salt API using the SSH client.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2018.3.4+dfsg1-6+deb10u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your salt packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of salt please refer to its security
    tracker page at:
