- Date Reported:
- 30 Jul 2015
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 793855.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2015-0851.
- More information:
The InCommon Shibboleth Training team discovered that XMLTooling, a C++ XML parsing library, did not properly handle an exception when parsing well-formed but schema-invalid XML. This could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via crafted XML data.
For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 1.4.2-5+deb7u1.
For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 1.5.3-2+deb8u1.
For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed shortly.
We recommend that you upgrade your xmltooling packages.
