    Multiple security issues have been discovered in PolarSSL, a lightweight 
    crypto and SSL/TLS library:
    
    CVE-2013-4623
    
        Jack Lloyd discovered a denial of service vulnerability in the 
        parsing of PEM-encoded certificates.
    
    CVE-2013-5914
    
        Paul Brodeur and TrustInSoft discovered a buffer overflow in the
        ssl_read_record() function, allowing the potential execution of
        arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2013-5915
    
        Cyril Arnaud and Pierre-Alain Fouque discovered timimg attacks against
        the RSA implementation.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems will be fixed in
    version 1.2.9-1~deb6u1 soon (due to a technical limitation the updates
    cannot be released synchronously).
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.2.9-1~deb7u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.3.1-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your polarssl packages.
