    Agostino Sarubbo and AromalUllas discovered that ettercap, a network
    security tool for traffic interception, contains vulnerabilities that
    allowed an attacker able to provide maliciously crafted filters to
    cause a denial-of-service via application crash.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1:0.8.1-3+deb8u1.
    
    For the upcoming stable (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions,
    these problems have been fixed in version 1:0.8.2-4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ettercap packages.
