An arbitrary file read vulnerability was discovered in passenger, a web application server. A local user allowed to deploy an application to passenger, can take advantage of this flaw by creating a symlink from the REVISION file to an arbitrary file on the system and have its content displayed through passenger-status.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 5.0.30-1+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your passenger packages.

For the detailed security status of passenger please refer to its security tracker page at: https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/passenger
