    CVE ID         : CVE-2017-8779
    
    Guido Vranken discovered that incorrect memory management in libtirpc,
    a transport-independent RPC library used by rpcbind and other programs
    may result in denial of service via memory exhaustion (depending on
    memory management settings).
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.2.5-1+deb8u1 of libtirpc and version 0.2.1-6+deb8u2 of rpcbind.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been
    fixed in version 0.2.5-1.2 and version 0.2.3-0.6 of rpcbind.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.2.5-1.2 and version 0.2.3-0.6 of rpcbind.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libtirpc packages.
