Debian DSA-1529-1 : firebird -- multiple vulnerabilities
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 38955
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionMultiple security problems have been discovered in the Firebird database, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code or denial of service.
This Debian security advisory is a bit unusual. While it\'s normally our strict policy to backport security bugfixes to older releases, this turned out to be infeasible for Firebird 1.5 due to large infrastructural changes necessary to fix these issues. As a consequence security support for Firebird 1.5 is hereby discontinued.
SolutionUpgrade to the firebird2.0 packages available at backports.org. Version 188.8.131.5281.ds1-6~bpo40+1 fixes all known issues.
