    Package        : libvncserver

    Debian Bug     : 850007 850008
    
    It was discovered that libvncserver, a collection of libraries used to
    implement VNC/RFB clients and servers, incorrectly processed incoming
    network packets. This resulted in several heap-based buffer overflows,
    allowing a rogue server to either cause a DoS by crashing the client,
    or potentially execute arbitrary code on the client side.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.9.9+dfsg2-6.1+deb8u2.
    
    For the testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions, these
    problems have been fixed in version 0.9.11+dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libvncserver packages.
