    Package        : opensaml2
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-0851
    Debian Bug     : 794851
    
    It was discovered that opensaml2, a Security Assertion Markup Language
    library, needed to be rebuilt against a fixed version of the xmltooling
    package due to its use of macros vulnerable to CVE-2015-0851 as fixed in
    the DSA 3321-1 update. For reference the original advisory text follows.
    
    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 2.4.3-4+deb7u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.5.3-2+deb8u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
    in version $stretch_VERSION.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version $UNSTABLE_VERSION.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your opensaml2 packages.
