    Debian Bug     : 742732
    
    Ivan Fratric of the Google Security Team discovered a heap-based buffer
    overflow vulnerability in LibYAML, a fast YAML 1.1 parser and emitter
    library. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted YAML
    document that, when parsed by an application using libyaml, would cause
    the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with
    the privileges of the user running the application.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.1.3-1+deb6u4.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.1.4-2+deb7u4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libyaml packages.
