Package        : xerces-c
CVE ID         : CVE-2015-0252
Debian Bug     : 780827

Anton Rager and Jonathan Brossard from the Salesforce.com Product
Security Team and Ben Laurie of Google discovered a denial of service
vulnerability in xerces-c, a validating XML parser library for C++. The
parser mishandles certain kinds of malformed input documents, resulting
in a segmentation fault during a parse operation. An unauthenticated
attacker could use this flaw to cause an application using the
xerces-c library to crash.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.1.1-3+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your xerces-c packages.
