    Debian Bug     : 869880
    
    Tyler Bohan of Talos discovered that FreeRDP, a free implementation of
    the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), contained several vulnerabilities
    that allowed a malicious remote server or a man-in-the-middle to
    either cause a DoS by forcibly terminating the client, or execute
    arbitrary code on the client side.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1.1.0~git20140921.1.440916e+dfsg1-4+deb8u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.1.0~git20140921.1.440916e+dfsg1-13+deb9u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.1.0~git20140921.1.440916e+dfsg1-14.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your freerdp packages.
