    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-10127
    Debian Bug     : 850716
    
    Matias P. Brutti discovered that python-pysaml2, a Python
    implementation of the Security Assertion Markup Language 2.0, did not
    correctly sanitize the XML messages it handled. This allowed a remote
    attacker to perform XML External Entity attacks, leading to a wide
    range of exploits.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.0-1+deb8u1.
    
    For the testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions, this
    problem has been fixed in version 3.0.0-5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your python-pysaml2 packages.
