Debian DLA-1458-1 : xml-security-c security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 111554
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionIt was discovered that the Apache XML Security for C++ library performed insufficient validation of KeyInfo hints, which could result in denial of service via NULL pointer dereferences when processing malformed XML data.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 1.7.2-3+deb8u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your xml-security-c 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 packages.
