Debian DLA-1460-1 : libmspack security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 111556
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionIt was discovered that there were several vulnerabilities in libsmpack, a library used to handle Microsoft compression formats.
A remote attacker could craft malicious .CAB, .CHM or .KWAJ files and use these flaws to cause a denial of service via application crash, or potentially execute arbitrary code.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', this issue has been fixed in libmspack version 0.5-1+deb8u2.
We recommend that you upgrade your libmspack packages.
