    Debian Bug     : 848830
    
    Gjoko Krstic of Zero Science Labs discovered that dcmtk, a collection
    of libraries implementing the DICOM standard, did not properly handle
    the size of data received the network. This could lead to
    denial-of-service (via application crash) or arbitrary code execution.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.6.0-15+deb8u1.
    
    For the testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions, this
    problem has been fixed in version 3.6.1~20160216-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your dcmtk packages.
