Debian DLA-1364-1 : openslp-dfsg security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 109348
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.



An issue has been found in openslp that is related to heap memory corruption, which may result in a denial of service or remote code execution.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.1-9+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your openslp-dfsg 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.


Upgrade the affected packages.
