Debian Security Advisory DSA-3861-1 firstname.lastname@example.org https://www.debian.org/security/ Sebastien Delafond May 24, 2017 https://www.debian.org/security/faq
Package : libtasn1-6 CVE ID : CVE-2017-6891 Debian Bug : 863186
Jakub Jirasek of Secunia Research discovered that libtasn1, a library used to handle Abstract Syntax Notation One structures, did not properly validate its input. This would allow an attacker to cause a crash by denial-of-service, or potentially execute arbitrary code, by tricking a user into processing a maliciously crafted assignments file.
For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 4.2-3+deb8u3.
We recommend that you upgrade your libtasn1-6 packages.
