    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in symfony, a framework to
    create websites and web applications. The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2015-8124
    
        The RedTeam Pentesting GmbH team discovered a session fixation
        vulnerability within the "Remember Me" login feature, allowing an
        attacker to impersonate the victim towards the web application if
        the session id value was previously known to the attacker.
    
    CVE-2015-8125
    
        Several potential remote timing attack vulnerabilities were
        discovered in classes from the Symfony Security component and in the
        legacy CSRF implementation from the Symfony Form component.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.3.21+dfsg-4+deb8u2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.7.7+dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your symfony packages.
