Debian Security Advisory
DLA-2703-1 ieee-data -- LTS security update
- 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 ieee.org 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.
