[SECURITY] [DLA 663-1] tor security update
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Package : tor
Version : 0.2.4.27-2
It has been discovered that Tor treats the contents of some buffer
chunks as if they were a NUL-terminated string. This issue could
enable a remote attacker to crash a Tor client, hidden service, relay,
or authority. This update aims to defend against this general
class of security bugs.
For Debian 7 "Wheezy", this problem has been fixed in version 0.2.4.27-2.
For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2.5.12-3., for unstable (sid) with version 0.2.8.9-1, and for
experimental with 0.2.9.4-alpha-1.
Additionally, for wheezy this updates the set of authority directory servers
to the one from Tor 0.2.8.7, released in August 2016.
We recommend that you upgrade your tor packages.
