Package : dcmtk
CVE ID : CVE-2015-8979
Debian Bug : 848830

Gjoko Krstic of Zero Science Labs discovered that dcmtk, a collection
of libraries implementing the DICOM standard, did not properly handle
the size of data received the network. This could lead to
denial-of-service (via application crash) or arbitrary code execution.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.6.0-15+deb8u1.

For the testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions, this
problem has been fixed in version 3.6.1~20160216-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your dcmtk packages.
