Package        : e2fsprogs
CVE ID         : CVE-2015-0247 CVE-2015-1572
Debian Bug     : 778948

Jose Duart of the Google Security Team discovered a buffer overflow in
in e2fsprogs, a set of utilities for the ext2, ext3, and ext4 file
systems.  This issue can possibly lead to arbitrary code execution if
a malicious device is plugged in, the system is configured to
automatically mount it, and the mounting process chooses to run fsck
on the device's malicious filesystem.

CVE-2015-0247

    Buffer overflow in the ext2/ext3/ext4 file system open/close routines.

CVE-2015-1572

    Incomplete fix for CVE-2015-0247.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.42.5-1.1+deb7u1.

For the upcoming stable (jessie) and unstable (sid) distributions,
these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your e2fsprogs packages.
