Date Reported:
04 Jul 2021
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 908623, Bug 932711.
More information:

The ieee-data package, which provides the OUI and IAB listings of identifiers assigned by IEEE Standards Association, ships a script (update-ieee-data) which queries to download the most recent dataset and save it to /var/lib/ieee-data/.

This script broke for stretch at the end of 2018 when the URL changed.

For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version 20160613.1+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ieee-data packages.

For the detailed security status of ieee-data please refer to its security tracker page at:
