    Debian Bug     : 771365
    
    Jonathan Gray and Stanislaw Pitucha found an assertion failure in the
    way wrapped strings are parsed in LibYAML, a fast YAML 1.1 parser and
    emitter library. An attacker able to load specially crafted YAML input
    into an application using libyaml could cause the application to crash.
    
    This update corrects this flaw in the copy that is embedded in the
    libyaml-libyaml-perl package.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.38-3+deb7u3.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been
    fixed in version 0.41-6.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.41-6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libyaml-libyaml-perl packages.
