Xrdp security update for Debian 7 LTS

Package : xrdp
Version : 0.5.0-2+deb7u2
CVE ID : CVE-2017-16927

The scp_v0s_accept function in sesman/libscp/libscp_v0.c in the session manager
in xrdp uses an untrusted integer as a write length, which allows local users
to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow and application crash) or
possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted input stream.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your xrdp packages.
