March 08, 2022

redis vulnerability
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 21.10
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS


Redis could be made to run programs if it received specially crafted
network traffic from an authenticated user.

Software Description:
- redis: Persistent key-value database with network interface


Reginaldo Silva discovered that due to a packaging issue, a remote attacker
with the ability to execute arbitrary Lua scripts could possibly escape the
Lua sandbox and execute arbitrary code on the host.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 21.10:
redis 5:6.0.15-1ubuntu0.1
redis-server 5:6.0.15-1ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
redis 5:5.0.7-2ubuntu0.1
redis-server 5:5.0.7-2ubuntu0.1

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.

thank you Templateism for the design - You should have written the code a little more complicated - Nothing Encrypted anymore
