[SECURITY] [DLA 544-1] tcpreplay security update

Package        : tcpreplay
Version        : 3.4.3-2+wheezy2
CVE ID         : CVE-2016-6160
Debian Bug     : 829350

The tcprewrite program, part of the tcpreplay suite, does not check the
size of the frames it processes. Huge frames may trigger a segmentation
fault, and such frames occur when caputuring packets on interfaces with
an MTU of or close to 65536. For example, the loopback interface lo of
the Linux kernel has such a value.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your tcpreplay packages.
