    In libssh2, SSH_MSG_DISCONNECT logic in packet.c has an integer
    overflow in a bounds check, enabling an attacker to specify an
    arbitrary (out-of-bounds) offset for a subsequent memory read. A
    crafted SSH server may be able to disclose sensitive information or
    cause a denial of service condition on the client system when a user
    connects to the server
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    1.4.3-4.1+deb8u6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libssh2 packages.
