Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2015-12-01 13:43:35 UTC
From ${URL} :

Debian fixed the following flaw in dpkg:

Hanno Boeck discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in the dpkg-deb component of dpkg, the Debian 
package management system. This flaw could potentially lead to arbitrary code execution if a user 
or an automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted Debian binary package 
(.deb) in the old style Debian binary package format.

Additional information:

@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.
