    Package        : libvdpau
    Debian Bug     : 802625
    
    The previous update for libvdpau, DSA-3355-1, introduced a regression in
    the stable distribution (jessie) causing a segmentation fault when the
    DRI_PRIME environment variable is set. For reference, the original
    advisory text follows.
    
    Florian Weimer of Red Hat Product Security discovered that libvdpau, the
    VDPAU wrapper library, did not properly validate environment variables,
    allowing local attackers to gain additional privileges.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8-3+deb8u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libvdpau packages.
