    It was discovered that libtiprc, a transport-independent RPC library, 
    could be used for a denial of service or possibly unspecified other impact 
    by a stack-based buffer overflow due to a flood of crafted ICMP and UDP 
    packets.

    0.2.5-1+deb8u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libtirpc packages.
