Debian DLA-569-1 : xmlrpc-epi security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 92633
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionInteger signedness error in the simplestring_addn function in simplestring.c in xmlrpc-epi through 0.54.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a long first argument to the PHP xmlrpc_encode_request function.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 0.54.2-1+deb7u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your xmlrpc-epi packages.
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.
SolutionUpgrade the affected packages.
