Package        : xml-security-c
Version        : 1.7.2-3+deb8u1
CVE ID         : not yet available
Debian Bug     : 905332

It was discovered that the Apache XML Security for C++ library performed
insufficient validation of KeyInfo hints, which could result in denial
of service via NULL pointer dereferences when processing malformed XML
data.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
1.7.2-3+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your xml-security-c packages.
