Comment: This advisory references vulnerabilities in products which run on 
         platforms other than Debian. It is recommended that administrators 
         running mercurial check for an updated version of the software for 
         their operating system.

Package        : mercurial
Version        : 2.2.2-4+deb7u7
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-1000132
Debian Bug     : 892964

Mercurial version 4.5 and earlier contains a Incorrect Access Control
(CWE-285) vulnerability in Protocol server that can result in
Unauthorized data access. This attack appear to be exploitable via
network connectivity. This vulnerability appears to have been fixed in
4.5.1.

This update also fixes a regression inroduced in 2.2.2-4+deb7u5 which
makes the testsuite fail non-deterministically.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version
2.2.2-4+deb7u7.

We recommend that you upgrade your mercurial packages.
