Debian DSA-4407-1 : xmltooling - security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 122794


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


Ross Geerlings discovered that the XMLTooling library didn't correctly handle exceptions on malformed XML declarations, which could result in denial of service against the application using XMLTooling.


Upgrade the xmltooling packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 1.6.0-4+deb9u2.
