Description

It was discovered that there was an invalid memory and heap overflow vulnerability in dosfstools, a collection of utilities for making and checking MS-DOS FAT filesystems.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', this issue has been fixed in dosfstools version 3.0.13-1+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your dosfstools packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
