    An issue has been found in iperf3, an Internet Protocol bandwidth 
    measuring tool.
    Bad handling of UTF8/16 strings in an embedded library could cause a 
    denial of service (crash) or execution of arbitrary code by putting 
    special characters in a JSON string, which triggers a heap-based buffer 
    overflow.
    
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    3.0.7-1+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your iperf3 packages.
