Debian Security Advisory DSA-3845-1 [email protected]

Package : libtirpc
CVE ID : CVE-2017-8779

Guido Vranken discovered that incorrect memory management in libtirpc,
a transport-independent RPC library used by rpcbind and other programs
may result in denial of service via memory exhaustion (depending on
memory management settings).

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2.5-1+deb8u1 of libtirpc and version 0.2.1-6+deb8u2 of rpcbind.

For the upcoming stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been
fixed in version 0.2.5-1.2 and version 0.2.3-0.6 of rpcbind.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2.5-1.2 and version 0.2.3-0.6 of rpcbind.

We recommend that you upgrade your libtirpc packages.
