    Package        : libtasn1-3
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-3467 CVE-2014-3468 CVE-2014-3469
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in libtasn1-3, a library that
    manages ASN1 (Abstract Syntax Notation One) structures. An attacker
    could use those to cause a denial-of-service via out-of-bounds access
    or NULL pointer dereference.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.13-2+deb7u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libtasn1-3 packages.
