Debian DLA-667-1 : libxv security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 94141
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

Tobias Stoeckmann from the OpenBSD project has discovered a number of issues in the way various X client libraries handle the responses they receive from servers. Insufficient validation of data from the X server can cause out of boundary memory and memory corruption in the libxv library.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 2:1.0.7-1+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your libxv 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.

Solution

Upgrade the affected libxv-dev, libxv1, and libxv1-dbg packages.
