It was discovered that there was an arbitrary code execution vulnerability in the pump DHCP/BOOTP client.

When copying the body of the server response, the ethernet packet length could be forged leading to being able to overwrite stack memory. Thanks to <> for the report and patch. (#933674)

For Debian 8 Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 0.8.24-7+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your pump packages.
