    Package        : dpkg
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-0860
    
    Hanno Boeck discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in the dpkg-deb
    component of dpkg, the Debian package management system. This flaw could
    potentially lead to arbitrary code execution if a user or an automated
    system were tricked into processing a specially crafted Debian binary
    package (.deb) in the old style Debian binary package format.
    
    This update also includes updated translations and additional bug fixes.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
    in version 1.16.17.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.17.26.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your dpkg packages.
