Package : tang
Version : 7-1+deb10u2
CVE ID : CVE-2023-1672
Debian Bug : 1038119

It was discovered that there was a race condition in Tang, a
network-based cryptographic binding server. This flaw resulted in a
small time window whereby newly-generated private keys were readable
by other processes on the same machine.

For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version
7-1+deb10u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your tang packages.
