SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionPaul Szabo discovered a potential privilege escalation that could be exploited in the situation envisaged in DLA-622-1. This update also addresses several regressions stemming from incomplete fixes for CVE-2015-5345, CVE-2016-5018 and CVE-2016-6797.
