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.
