Debian DLA-1555-1 : libmspack security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 118468

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

CVE-2018-18584 Fixing the size of the CAB block input buffer, which is
too small for the maximal Quantum block, prevents an out-of-bounds
write.

CVE-2018-18585 Blank filenames (having length zero or their 1st or 2nd
byte is null) should be rejected.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version
0.5-1+deb8u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your libmspack 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.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
