More information:

Tyler Bohan of Talos discovered that FreeRDP, a free implementation of the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), contained several vulnerabilities that allowed a malicious remote server or a man-in-the-middle to either cause a DoS by forcibly terminating the client, or execute arbitrary code on the client side.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.1-1.1+deb7u4.

We recommend that you upgrade your freerdp packages.
