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

medium Nessus Plugin ID 78681


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


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.


Upgrade the libtasn1-3 packages.

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