Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2016-08-25 08:48:55 UTC
From ${URL} :

It was found that when doing handshake/renegotiation, it's possible to bypass DTLS replay protection by 
sending a record for the next epoch (which does not have to decrypt or have a valid MAC), with a very 
large sequence number. This means the right hand edge of the window is moved very far to the right, and 
all subsequent legitimate packets are dropped causing a denial of service.

Upstream patches:

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
