    Package        : polarssl
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-1182
    Debian Bug     : 775776
    
    A vulnerability was discovered in PolarSSL, a lightweight crypto and
    SSL/TLS library. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw using
    specially crafted certificates to mount a denial of service against an
    application linked against the library (application crash), or
    potentially, to execute arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.9-1~deb7u5.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie) and the unstable
    distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your polarssl packages.
