Debian DLA-840-1 : libplist security update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 97437
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionSeveral vulnerabilities were discovered in libplist, a library for reading and writing the Apple binary and XML property lists format. A maliciously crafted plist file could cause an application to crash by triggering a heap-based buffer overflow and memory allocation error in the plist_from_bin function.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.8-1+deb7u2.
We recommend that you upgrade your libplist 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.
