I just sent a DLA.

Subject: [SECURITY] [DLA 847-1] texlive-base security update
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Package : texlive-base
Version : 2012.20120611-5+deb7u1
CVE ID : CVE-2016-10243
The TeX system allows for calling external programs from within the TeX
source code. This has been restricted to a small set of programs since a
long time ago.
Unfortunately it turned out that one program in the list, mpost, allows
in turn to specify other programs to be run, which allows arbitrary code
execution when compiling a TeX document.
For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version
We recommend that you upgrade your texlive-base packages.
