Description Arvid Requate univentionstaff 2015-09-28 18:16:01 CEST
This security issue is fixed in upstream Debian package version 2.1.0-1+deb7u2:

* Multiple integer overflows in the XML_GetBuffer function in Expat through 2.1.0 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted XML data (CVE-2015-1283)

Upstream Debian package version 2.1.0-1+deb7u3 fixes this additional issue:

* Out-of-bounds heap read on crafted input causing crash or code execution (CVE-2016-0718)
Comment 2 Arvid Requate univentionstaff 2016-06-07 20:15:06 CEST
Two additional issues have been fixed in the Jessie package version:

* unanticipated internal calls to srand (CVE-2012-6702)
* use of too little entropy (CVE-2016-5300)
