Package        : linuxptp
CVE ID         : CVE-2021-3570
Debian Bug     : 990748

Miroslav Lichvar reported that the ptp4l program in linuxptp, an
implementation of the Precision Time Protocol (PTP), does not validate
the messageLength field of incoming messages, allowing a remote attacker
to cause a denial of service, information leak, or potentially remote
code execution.

For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.9.2-1+deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your linuxptp packages.
