Debian DSA-3056-1 : libtasn1-3 - security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 78681
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in libtasn1-3, a library that manages ASN1 (Abstract Syntax Notation One) structures. An attacker could use those to cause a denial-of-service via out-of-bounds access or NULL pointer dereference.

Solution

Upgrade the libtasn1-3 packages.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 2.13-2+deb7u1.
