Several heap-based buffer overflow vulnerabilities were discovered in the Simple DirectMedia Layer library which may lead to information disclosure, memory corruption, denial-of-service or other unspecified impact when input is processed.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.15-5+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libsdl1.2 packages.
