More information:
  • CVE-2017-2816

    An exploitable buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the tag parsing functionality of LibOFX 0.9.11. A specially crafted OFX file can cause a write out of bounds resulting in a buffer overflow on the stack. An attacker can construct a malicious OFX file to trigger this vulnerability.

  • CVE-2017-14731

    ofx_proc_file in ofx_preproc.cpp allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer over-read and application crash) via a crafted file

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 1:0.9.4-2.1+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libofx packages.
