Debian DLA-1316-1 : freeplane security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 108606

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Wojciech Reguła discovered that Freeplane, a program for working with mind maps, was affected by a XML External Entity (XXE) vulnerability in its mindmap loader that could compromise a user's machine by opening a specially crafted mind map file.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.1.3-2+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your freeplane 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 freeplane, and libjortho-freeplane-java packages.
