    Package        : srtp
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-6360
    Debian Bug     : 807698
    
    Randell Jesup and the Firefox team discovered that srtp, Cisco's
    reference implementation of the Secure Real-time Transport Protocol
    (SRTP), does not properly handle RTP header CSRC count and extension
    header length. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability to crash
    an application linked against libsrtp, resulting in a denial of service.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
    in version 1.4.4+20100615~dfsg-2+deb7u2.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.5~20130609~dfsg-1.1+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your srtp packages.
