Package        : botan1.10
CVE ID         : CVE-2017-2801

Aleksandar Nikolic discovered that an error in the x509 parser of the
Botan crypto library could result in an out-of-bounds memory read,
resulting in denial of service or an information leak if processing
a malformed certificate.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed
in version 1.10.8-2+deb8u2.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
prior to the initial release.

We recommend that you upgrade your botan1.10 packages.
