    John Stumpo discovered that OpenAFS, a distributed file system, does
    not fully initialize certain network packets before transmitting them.
    This can lead to a disclosure of the plaintext of previously processed
    packets.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1.6.1-3+deb7u5.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.6.9-2+deb8u4.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 1.6.15-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openafs packages.
