    Jon Erickson of iSIGHT Partners Labs discovered a heap overflow in
    xml-security-c, an implementation of the XML Digital Security
    specification. The fix to address CVE-2013-2154 introduced the
    possibility of a heap overflow in the processing of malformed XPointer
    expressions in the XML Signature Reference processing code, possibly
    leading to arbitrary code execution.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5.1-3+squeeze3.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.6.1-5+deb7u2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.6.1-7.
