    It was discovered that polarssl, a library providing SSL and TLS
    support, contained two heap-based buffer overflows that could allow a
    remote attacker to trigger denial of service (via application crash)
    or arbitrary code execution.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1.2.9-1~deb7u6.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.3.9-2.1+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your polarssl packages.
