Re: [SECURITY] [DLA 1942-1] phpbb3 security update
I see you reverted affectation for CVE-2019-13376.
CVE-2019-13376 is an follow-up fix to CVE-2019-16993 (2016) which I
registered just yesterday toclarify that we've been missing this earlier
fix (AFAICS unsuccessfully ;)).
CVE-2019-13376 applies to 3.2.7 which already has the fix that you
thought was related (phpbb's SECURITY-231), which is a different
"vulnerability" (with quotes, as it just disables a feature by default,
which is expected to be re-enabled for CVE-2019-13376 to apply, as
mentioned in the write-up: "in the ACP, go to General > Avatar settings
and enable remote avatars").
Consequently DLA 1942-1 fixes CVE-2019-13376 and CVE-2019-16993.
SECURITY-231 doesn't have a CVE assigned.
