DLA-865-1 suricata -- LTS security update

Date Reported:
22 Mar 2017
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 Wheezy, this issue has been fixed in suricata version 1.2.1-2+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your suricata packages.
