Patch  oval:org.mitre.oval:def:24469
DSA-2884-1 libyaml - security update  

Ivan Fratric of the Google Security Team discovered a heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability in LibYAML, a fast YAML 1.1 parser and emitterlibrary. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted YAMLdocument that, when parsed by an application using libyaml, would cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
