Libofx Security Update for Debian 7 LTS


Package : libofx
Version : 1:0.9.4-2.1+deb7u1
CVE ID : CVE-2017-2816 CVE-2017-14731


CVE-2017-2816
An exploitable buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the tag
parsing functionality of LibOFX 0.9.11. A specially crafted OFX
file can cause a write out of bounds resulting in a buffer
overflow on the stack. An attacker can construct a malicious
OFX file to trigger this vulnerability.

CVE-2017-14731
ofx_proc_file in ofx_preproc.cpp allows remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (heap-based buffer over-read and application
crash) via a crafted file


For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version
1:0.9.4-2.1+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libofx packages.
