Package : xmltooling
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the xmltooling packages,
as used by Shibboleth:

Chris Ries discovered that decoding a crafted URL leads to a crash (and
potentially, arbitrary code execution).

Ian Young discovered that embedded NUL characters in certificate names
were not correctly handled, exposing configurations using PKIX trust
validation to impersonation attacks.

Incorrect processing of SAML metadata ignores key usage constraints.
This minor issue also needs a correction in the opensaml2 packages,
which will be provided in an upcoming stable point release (and,
before that, via stable-proposed-updates).

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0-2+lenny1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.2.2-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your xmltooling 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.
