Debian Security Advisory

DLA-575-2 collectd -- LTS security update

Date Reported:
04 Aug 2016
Affected Packages:
collectd
Vulnerable:
Yes
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 833013.
More information:

The previous upload of collectd surfaced a problem in the way the network plugin initializes gcrypt preventing the plugin from being loaded when packet signing or encryption is enabled. Previously, this may have led to program crashes.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 5.1.0-3+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your collectd packages.
