Description

Stefan Roas discovered a way to cause a buffer overflow in DBD-FireBird, a Perl DBI driver for the Firebird RDBMS, in certain error conditions, due to the use of the sprintf() function to write to a fixed-size memory buffer.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 0.91-2+deb7u1.

For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 1.18-2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.18-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your libdbd-firebird-perl packages.
