    Debian Bug     : 762789
    
    A vulnerability was discovered in ppp, an implementation of the
    Point-to-Point Protocol: an integer overflow in the routine
    responsible for parsing user-supplied options potentially allows a
    local attacker to gain root privileges.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.4.5-5.1+deb7u1.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie) and unstable
    distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.4.6-3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ppp packages.
