    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem type   : remote

    Debian Bug     : 711163
    
      Fernando Russ from Groundworks Technologies reported a buffer overflow
      flaw in srtp, Cisco's reference implementation of the Secure Real-time
      Transport Protocol (SRTP), in how the
      crypto_policy_set_from_profile_for_rtp() function applies
      cryptographic profiles to an srtp_policy. A remote attacker could
      exploit this vulnerability to crash an application linked against
      libsrtp, resulting in a denial of service.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.4~dfsg-6+deb6u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.4+20100615~dfsg-2+deb7u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.5~20130609~dfsg-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.5~20130609~dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your srtp packages.
