-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA512 - ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Debian Security Advisory DSA-2826-2 Yves-Alexis Perez January 23, 2014 - ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Package : denyhosts Vulnerability : regression Debian Bug : 734329 CVE ID : CVE-2013-6890 A regression has been found on the denyhosts packages fixing CVE-2013-6890. This regression could cause an attempted breakin attempt to be missed by denyhosts, which would then fail to enforce a ban. For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 2.6-7+deb6u3. For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 2.6-10+deb7u3. For the testing (jessie) and unstable (sid) distribution, the package denyhosts has been removed, and its users are encouraged to switch to an alternative like fail2ban. We recommend that you upgrade your denyhosts packages.
