Description

A newer version of waagent is needed for several features of the Azure platform.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 2.2.18-3~deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your waagent packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
