Debian DSA-4215-1 : batik - security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 110316


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Man Yue Mo, Lars Krapf and Pierre Ernst discovered that Batik, a toolkit for processing SVG images, did not properly validate its input. This would allow an attacker to cause a denial-of-service, mount cross-site scripting attacks, or access restricted files on the server.


Upgrade the batik packages.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 1.7+dfsg-5+deb8u1.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 1.8-4+deb9u1.
