[SECURITY] [DLA 927-1] fop security update

Package        : fop
Version        : 1:1.0.dfsg2-6+deb7u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2017-5661
Debian Bug     : 860567

In Apache FOP before 2.2, files lying on the filesystem of the server
which uses FOP can be revealed to arbitrary users who send maliciously
formed SVG files. The file types that can be shown depend on the user
context in which the exploitable application is running. If the user is
root a full compromise of the server - including confidential or
sensitive files - would be possible. XXE can also be used to attack the
availability of the server via denial of service as the references
within a xml document can trivially trigger an amplification attack.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your fop packages.
