    libpcap (Packet CAPture), a low-level network monitoring library, does
    not properly validate the PHB header length before allocating memory.
    This update added sanity checks for PHB header length.
    
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    1.6.2-2+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libpcap packages.
