Debian DLA-1296-1 : xmltooling security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 107104

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Kelby Ludwig and Scott Cantor discovered that the Shibboleth service provider is vulnerable to impersonation attacks and information disclosure due to incorrect XML parsing. For additional details please refer to the upstream advisory at https://shibboleth.net/community/advisories/secadv_20180227.txt

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.4.2-5+deb7u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your xmltooling 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.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
