CVE-2015-3026 (denial of service):

The bug can only be triggered if "stream_auth" is being used. This means, that all installations that use a default configuration are NOT affected.The default configuration only uses <source-password>. Neither are simple mountpoints affected that use <password>. A workaround, if installing an updated package is not possible, is to disable "stream_auth"and use <password> instead. As far as we understand the bug only leads to a simple remote denial of service. The underlying issue is a null pointer dereference. For clarity: No remote code execution should be possible, server just segfaults.
