Description :

when the tcpmux-server service is enabled, which exposes all enabled
services and allows remote attackers to bypass intended access
restrictions via a request to tcpmux port 1 (CVE-2012-0862).

The updated packages have been upgraded to the 2.3.15 version which is
not vulnerble to this issue.

Solution :
