NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply to the upstream mercurial package. See Remediation section below for Debian:8 relevant versions.

Mercurial before 1.0.2 does not enforce the allowpull permission setting for a pull operation from hgweb, which allows remote attackers to read arbitrary files from a repository via an "hg pull" request.

Remediation

Upgrade Debian:8 mercurial to version 1.0.1-5.1 or higher.
