How to fix?

There is no fixed version for libplist.

Overview

libplist is a library to handle Apple Property List format in binary or XML

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Resource Management Errors. The vulnerability exists because the parse_data_node function in bplist.c does not handle memory allocation properly, allowing a DoS attack using a plif file locally.
