Package        : linuxptp
Version        : 1.8-1+deb9u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2021-3570


Miroslav Lichvar reported that the ptp4l program in linuxptp, an 
implementation of the Precision Time Protocol (PTP), does not validate the 
messageLength field of incoming messages, allowing a remote attacker to 
cause a denial of service, information leak, or potentially remote code 
execution.


For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version
1.8-1+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your linuxptp packages.
