Package : rpcbind CVE ID : CVE-2015-7236 Debian Bug : 799307

A remotely triggerable use-after-free vulnerability was found in rpcbind, a server that converts RPC program numbers into universal addresses. A remote attacker can take advantage of this flaw to mount a denial of service (rpcbind crash).

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 0.2.0-8+deb7u1.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 0.2.1-6+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your rpcbind packages.
