    Debian Bug     : 864424
    
    It has been discovered that Tor, a connection-based low-latency
    anonymous communication system, contain a flaw in the hidden service
    code when receiving a BEGIN_DIR cell on a hidden service rendezvous
    circuit. A remote attacker can take advantage of this flaw to cause a
    hidden service to crash with an assertion failure (TROVE-2017-005).
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.2.5.14-1.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (stretch), this problem will be
    fixed in version 0.2.9.11-1~deb9u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.2.9.11-1.
