    Package        : libndp
    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-3698
    Debian Bug     : 824545
    
    Julien Bernard discovered that libndp, a library for the IPv6 Neighbor
    Discovery Protocol, does not properly perform input and origin checks
    during the reception of a NDP message. An attacker in a non-local
    network could use this flaw to advertise a node as a router, and cause a
    denial of service attack, or act as a man-in-the-middle.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4-2+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libndp packages.
