- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2017-7177.
- More information:
It was discovered that there was a vulnerability in suricata, an intrusion detection tool; the IP protocol was not being used to match fragments with their packets allowing a carefully constructed packet (with a different protocol) to be matched, thus creating a packet that would not be re-assembled by the destination host.
For Debian 7

We recommend that you upgrade your suricata packages.
