    Package        : wpa
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-1863
    Debian Bug     : 783148
    
    The Google security team and the smart hardware research group of
    Alibaba security team discovered a flaw in how wpa_supplicant used SSID
    information when creating or updating P2P peer entries. A remote
    attacker can use this flaw to cause wpa_supplicant to crash, expose
    memory contents, and potentially execute arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0-3+deb7u2. Note that this issue does not affect the binary
    packages distributed in Debian as the CONFIG_P2P is not enabled for
    the build.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been
    fixed in version 2.3-1+deb8u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.3-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wpa packages.
