Debian DLA-77-1 : libtasn1-3 security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 82222
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 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.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
