Tyler Bohan of Talos discovered that FreeRDP, a free implementation of the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), contained several vulnerabilities that allowed a malicious remote server or a man-in-the-middle to either cause a DoS by forcibly terminating the client, or execute arbitrary code on the client side.
For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 1.1.0~git20140921.1.440916e+dfsg1-4+deb8u1.
For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 1.1.0~git20140921.1.440916e+dfsg1-13+deb9u1.
For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 1.1.0~git20140921.1.440916e+dfsg1-14.
We recommend that you upgrade your freerdp packages.
