    Package        : libtasn1-3
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-2806
    
    Hanno Boeck discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in the
    asn1_der_decoding function in Libtasn1, a library to manage ASN.1
    structures. A remote attacker could take advantage of this flaw to cause
    an application using the Libtasn1 library to crash, or potentially to
    execute arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.13-2+deb7u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libtasn1-3 packages.
