CVE-2015-0847 in nbd-server From: Florian Weimer <fw () deneb enyo de>
Date: Thu, 07 May 2015 22:45:33 +0200

nbd-server uses signal handlers incorrectly, which leads to a denial
of service vulnerability.  We have assigned CVE-2015-0847 to this

This was first reported to the Debian security team by Tuomas Räsänen,
but we did not think this warranted an embargo.

More details are available upstream:

I'm not maintaining nbd. I jumped in to help when Kurt Garloff left the company but afaik Martin Pluskal took it over and cleaned it up greatly
Comment 3 Martin Pluskal 2015-05-11 08:29:17 UTC
While I am not maintainer of nbd, I created sr for factory (nbd-3.10), backporting patches for maint update of old nbd (nbd-3.3) seems to be beyond my capabilities.
