    Debian Bug     : 819179
    
    Kostya Kortchinsky discovered a stack-based buffer overflow
    vulnerability in the VPNv4 NLRI parser in bgpd in quagga, a BGP/OSPF/RIP
    routing daemon. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw to cause a
    denial of service (daemon crash), or potentially, execution of arbitrary
    code, if bgpd is configured with BGP peers enabled for VPNv4.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
    in version 0.99.22.4-1+wheezy2.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.99.23.1-1+deb8u1.
