    A security vulnerability was discovered in libxslt, a XSLT 1.0
    processing library written in C.
    
    In xsltCopyText in transform.c, a pointer variable is not reset under
    certain circumstances. If the relevant memory area happened to be freed
    and reused in a certain way, a bounds check could fail and memory
    outside a buffer could be written to, or uninitialized data could be
    disclosed.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    1.1.28-2+deb8u6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libxslt packages.
