    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in tinc, a Virtual Private
    Network (VPN) daemon. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2018-16738
    
        Michael Yonli discovered a flaw in the implementation of the
        authentication protocol that could allow a remote attacker to
        establish an authenticated, one-way connection with another node.
    
    CVE-2018-16758
    
        Michael Yonli discovered that a man-in-the-middle that has
        intercepted a TCP connection might be able to disable encryption of
        UDP packets sent by a node.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.31-1+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tinc packages.
