It was discovered that ZeroMQ, a lightweight messaging kernel library does not properly handle connecting peers before a handshake is completed. A remote, unauthenticated client connecting to an application using the libzmq library, running with a socket listening with CURVE encryption/authentication enabled can take advantage of this flaw to cause a denial of service affecting authenticated and encrypted clients.
For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version 4.2.1-4+deb9u3.
