Package : connman Version : 1.0-1.1+wheezy2 CVE ID : CVE-2017-12865 Debian Bug : 872844

In connman, stack-based buffer overflow in "dnsproxy.c" allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or execute arbitrary code via a crafted response query string passed to the "name" variable.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version 1.0-1.1+wheezy2.

We recommend that you upgrade your connman packages.
