Debian DSA-3807-1 : icoutils - security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 97670


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


Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in the icotool and wrestool tools of Icoutils, a set of programs that deal with MS Windows icons and cursors, which may result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed .ico or .exe file is processed.


Upgrade the icoutils packages.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 0.31.0-2+deb8u3.

For the upcoming stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 0.31.2-1.
