In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 905332.
More information:

It was discovered that the Apache XML Security for C++ library performed insufficient validation of KeyInfo hints, which could result in denial of service via NULL pointer dereferences when processing malformed XML data.

For Debian 8 Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 1.7.2-3+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your xml-security-c packages.
