    Package        : firebird2.5
    CVE ID         : CVE-2017-6369
    Debian Bug     : 858641
    
    George Noseevich discovered that firebird2.5, a relational database
    system, did not properly check User-Defined Functions (UDF), thus
    allowing remote authenticated users to execute arbitrary code on the
    firebird server.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.5.3.26778.ds4-5+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your firebird2.5 packages.
