    LibVNC contained a memory leak (CWE-655) in VNC server code, which
    allowed an attacker to read stack memory and could be abused for
    information disclosure.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    0.9.9+dfsg2-6.1+deb8u6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libvncserver packages.
