Debian DLA-1281-1 : advancecomp security update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 106808
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionJoonun Jang discovered that the advzip tool in advancecomp, a collection of recompression utilities, was prone to a heap-based buffer overflow. This might allow an attacker to cause a denial of service (application crash) or other unspecified impact via a crafted file.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.15-1+deb7u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your advancecomp packages.
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpgrade the affected advancecomp package.
