Package        : xdelta3
CVE ID         : CVE-2014-9765
Debian Bug     : 814067

Stepan Golosunov discovered that xdelta3, a diff utility which works
with binary files, is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability within
the main_get_appheader function, which may lead to the execution of
arbitrary code.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
in version 3.0.0.dfsg-1+deb7u1.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.0.8-dfsg-1+deb8u1.

For the testing distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
in version 3.0.8-dfsg-1.1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.0.8-dfsg-1.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your xdelta3 packages.
