Debian DLA-1385-1 : batik security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 110161
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionMan Yue Mo discovered a security vulnerability in Apache Batik, an SVG image library. A missing check for the class type before calling newInstance when deserializing a subclass of AbstractDocument could lead to information disclosure.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.7+dfsg-3+deb7u3.
We recommend that you upgrade your batik 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 libbatik-java package.
