Debian Security Advisory DSA-1589-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Steve Kemp
May 28, 2008 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : libxslt
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-1767
Debian Bug : 482664

It was discovered that libxslt, an XSLT processing runtime library,
could be coerced into executing arbitrary code via a buffer overflow
when an XSL style sheet file with a long XSLT "transformation match"
condition triggered a large number of steps.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
1.1.19-2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.1.24-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libxslt package.


Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
