Package        : network-manager-vpnc
Version        : 0.9.10.0-1+deb8u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-10900
Debian Bug     : 904255


Denis Andzakovic discovered that network-manager-vpnc, a plugin to
provide VPNC support for NetworkManager, is prone to a privilege
escalation vulnerability. A newline character can be used to inject a
Password helper parameter into the configuration data passed to vpnc,
allowing a local user with privileges to modify a system connection to
execute arbitrary commands as root.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
0.9.10.0-1+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your network-manager-vpnc packages.
