    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-8792
    
    It was discovered that libmatroska, an extensible open standard
    audio/video container format, incorrectly processed EBML lacing. By
    providing maliciously crafted input, an attacker could use this flaw
    to force some leakage of information located in the process heap
    memory.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
    in version 1.3.0-2+deb7u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.1-2+deb8u1.
    
    For the testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions, this
    problem has been fixed in version 1.4.4-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libmatroska packages.
