- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2017-6435, CVE-2017-6436, CVE-2017-6439.
- More information:
More 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 a denial-of-service (application crash) by triggering a heap-based buffer overflow or memory allocation error in the parse_string_node function.
For Debian 7
Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 1.8-1+deb7u3.
We recommend that you upgrade your libplist packages.
