    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-3310
    Debian Bug     : 782450
    
    Emanuele Rocca discovered that ppp, a daemon implementing the
    Point-to-Point Protocol, was subject to a buffer overflow when
    communicating with a RADIUS server. This would allow unauthenticated
    users to cause a denial-of-service by crashing the daemon.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.4.5-5.1+deb7u2.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie) and unstable
    distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.4.6-3.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ppp packages.
