Package        : sympa
Version        : 6.2.16~dfsg-3+deb9u5
CVE ID         : CVE-2020-29668
Debian Bug     : 976020

Sympa, a modern mailing list manager, grants full SOAP API access by
sending invalid string as the cookie value, if the SOAP endpoint was
enabled. An attacker could manipulate the mailing lists, including
subscribing e-mails or getting the list of subscribers.

For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version
6.2.16~dfsg-3+deb9u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your sympa packages.
