Description

It was discovered that polarssl, a library providing SSL and TLS support, contained two heap-based buffer overflows that could allow a remote attacker to trigger denial of service (via application crash) or arbitrary code execution.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.9-1~deb7u6.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 1.3.9-2.1+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your polarssl packages.
