    Package        : bird
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-16159
    
    Daniel McCarney discovered that the BIRD internet routing daemon
    incorrectly validated RFC 8203 messages in it's BGP daemon, resulting
    in a stack buffer overflow.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.6.6-1+deb10u1. In addition this update fixes an incomplete
    revocation of privileges and a crash triggerable via the CLI (the latter
    two bugs are also fixed in the oldstable distribution (stretch) which is
    not affected by CVE-2019-16159).
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bird packages.
