Debian DLA-1714-1 : libsdl2 security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 122829


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


Multiple buffer overflow security issues have been found in libsdl2, a library that allows low level access to a video frame buffer, audio output, mouse, and keyboard.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 2.0.2+dfsg1-6+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libsdl2 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.
