Hello everybody,

a new patch release of collectd, 5.7.2, is available. As with other patch
releases, this release only fixes bugs and doesn't introduce new features.

If you are using the "network plugin" we recommend that you upgrade as soon as
possible: this release fixes a Denial Of Service (DOS) vulnerability that can
be triggered remotely (CVE-2017-7401).


The new version is available in source-code form from collectd's
download page. The direct download link is:
