    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-0851
    Debian Bug     : 793855
    
    The InCommon Shibboleth Training team discovered that XMLTooling, a
    C++ XML parsing library, did not properly handle an exception when
    parsing well-formed but schema-invalid XML. This could allow remote
    attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via crafted XML data.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
    in version 1.4.2-5+deb7u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5.3-2+deb8u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed shortly.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your xmltooling packages.
