- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : libxslt
Vulnerability : buffer overflows
Problem type : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-2935

Chris Evans discovered that a buffer overflow in the RC4 functions of
libexslt may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.1.19-3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your libxslt packages.

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.


Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 alias etch
- -------------------------------

Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.
