CVE ID         : CVE-2015-5309

A memory-corrupting integer overflow in the handling of the ECH (erase
characters) control sequence was discovered in PuTTY's terminal
emulator. A remote attacker can take advantage of this flaw to mount a
denial of service or potentially to execute arbitrary code.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
in version 0.62-9+deb7u3.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.63-10+deb8u1.

For the testing distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
in version 0.66-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.66-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your putty packages.
