Description

Jonathan Gray and Stanislaw Pitucha found an assertion failure in the way wrapped strings are parsed in LibYAML, a fast YAML 1.1 parser and emitter library. An attacker able to load specially crafted YAML input into an application using libyaml could cause the application to crash.

For Debian 6 Squeeze, these issues have been fixed in libyaml version 0.1.3-1+deb6u5
