        Insufficient user input validation in the sbr_hfadj module leads to
        stack-based buffer underflow issues. These flaws might be leveraged by
        remote attackers to cause DoS or any other unspecified impact.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version
    2.7-8+deb8u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your faad2 packages.
