Package : xerces-c
CVE ID : CVE-2016-0729
Debian Bug : 815907

Gustavo Grieco discovered that xerces-c, a validating XML parser library
for C++, mishandles certain kinds of malformed input documents,
resulting in buffer overflows during processing and error reporting.
These flaws could lead to a denial of service in applications using the
xerces-c library, or potentially, to the execution of arbitrary code.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
in version 3.1.1-3+deb7u2.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.1.1-5.1+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your xerces-c packages.
