Debian 8.7 released with security fixes

Debian - The Universal Operating System developers has announced release of Debian 8.7, 7th updated snapshot in Debian 8.x Jessy branch. This release includes some security fixes and resolutions for other critical issues reported in previous snapshots.

Debian 8.7 is not a new release, instead an updated snapshot with updated packages. This is just a continuation of snapshots in Debian 8.x series. So you can install any other snapshot in this release and update your system using regular update means to get all upgraded packages and bug fixes as in 8.7 snapshot.

The Debian project is pleased to announce the seventh update of its stable distribution Debian 8 (codename jessie). This update mainly adds corrections for security problems to the stable release, along with a few adjustments for serious problems. Security advisories were already published separately and are referenced where available.

Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of Debian 8 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to throw away old jessie CDs or DVDs but only to update via an up-to-date Debian mirror after an installation, to cause any out of date packages to be updated.
For a brief release announcement and detailed list of security fixes, see Debian website.
