Vulnerable and fixed packages
The table below lists information on source packages.
|sid, trixie, bookworm, bullseye
The information below is based on the following data on fixed versions.
Likely minor issue since the package that exist is generated by ca-certificates
package and ca-certificates in the package dependency list. Hence even though the
package is vulnerable the problem do not exist in Debian unless the admin has
explicitly removed the file from the filesystem.
Fixing this vulnerability can cause a regression in the case the
admin has intentionally removed this file to not check certificates.
