Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2017-04-06 15:14:57 UTC
From ${URL} :

Incorrect interaction of the parse_packet() and parse_part_sign_sha256() functions in network.c in collectd allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) of a collectd instance 
(configured with "SecurityLevel None" and with empty "AuthFile" options) via a crafted UDP packet.

Upstream bug:

@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.
