    Package        : freexl
    
    The update for freexl issued as DSA-3208-1 introduced a regression when
    handling certain Microsoft Excel spreadsheets files. Updated packages
    are now available to address this regression. For reference the original
    advisory text follows.
    
    Jodie Cunningham discovered multiple vulnerabilities in freexl, a
    library to read Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, which might result in
    denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed
    Excel file is opened.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
    in version 1.0.0b-1+deb7u3.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.0g-1+deb8u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your freexl packages.
