    Package        : batik
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-0250
    Debian Bug     : 780897
    
    Nicolas Gregoire and Kevin Schaller discovered that Batik, a toolkit
    for processing SVG images, would load XML external entities by
    default. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a
    specially crafted SVG file, an attacker could possibly obtain access
    to arbitrary files or cause resource consumption.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.7+dfsg-3+deb7u1.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie) and unstable
    distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.7+dfsg-5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your batik packages.
