Debian DLA-1582-1 : liblivemedia security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 119054


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


A stack based buffer overflow vulnerability was found in liblivemedia, the LIVE555 RTSP server library. This issue might be leveraged by remote attackers to cause code execution, by sending a crafted packet.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 2014.01.13-1+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your liblivemedia 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.


Upgrade the affected packages.
