Leon Zhao discovered several security vulnerabilities in libextractor,
a universal library and command-line tool to obtain meta-data about
files. NULL Pointer Dereferences, heap-based buffer overflows, integer
signedness errors and out-of-bounds read may lead to a denial-of-service
(application crash) or have other unspecified impact.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your libextractor packages.
