Debian DLA-2011-1 : xmlrpc-epi security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 131330
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAn issue in xmlrpc-epi, an XML-RPC request serialisation/deserialisation library, has been found.
An integer signedness error in the simplestring_addn function in simplestring.c in xmlrpc-epi could be used for a heap based buffer overflow and possibly execution of arbitrary code.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 0.54.2-1.1+deb8u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your xmlrpc-epi packages.
