Debian DSA-2886-1 : libxalan2-java - security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 73216


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


Nicolas Gregoire discovered several vulnerabilities in libxalan2-java, a Java library for XSLT processing. Crafted XSLT programs could access system properties or load arbitrary classes, resulting in information disclosure and, potentially, arbitrary code execution.


Upgrade the libxalan2-java packages.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 2.7.1-5+deb6u1.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 2.7.1-7+deb7u1.
