Description

Package : xmlrpc-epi Version : 0.54.2-1+deb7u1 CVE ID : CVE-2016-6296

Integer signedness error in the simplestring_addn function in simplestring.c in xmlrpc-epi through 0.54.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a long first argument to the PHP xmlrpc_encode_request function.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version 0.54.2-1+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your xmlrpc-epi packages.
