Package        : libidn
CVE ID         : CVE-2015-2059

It was discovered that libidn, the GNU library for Internationalized
Domain Names (IDNs), did not correctly handle invalid UTF-8 input,
causing an out-of-bounds read. This could allow attackers to disclose
sensitive information from an application using the libidn library.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.29-1+deb8u1.

For the testing distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
in version 1.31-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.31-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libidn packages.
