Package        : fail2ban
CVE ID         : CVE-2013-7176 CVE-2013-7177

Two vulnerabilities were discovered in Fail2ban, a solution to ban hosts 
that cause multiple authentication errors. When using Fail2ban to monitor
Postfix or Cyrus IMAP logs, improper input validation in log parsing 
could enable a remote attacker to trigger an IP ban on arbitrary 
addresses, resulting in denial of service.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.8.6-3wheezy3.

For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.8.11-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.8.11-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your fail2ban packages.
