    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-8836 CVE-2015-8837
    Debian Bug     : 779047
    
    It was discovered that fuseiso, a user-space implementation of the
    ISO 9660 file system based on FUSE, contains several vulnerabilities.
    
    CVE-2015-8836
    
        A stack-based buffer overflow may allow attackers who can trick a
        user into mounting a crafted ISO 9660 file system to cause a
        denial of service (crash), or, potentially, execute arbitrary
        code.
    
    CVE-2015-8837
    
        An integer overflow leads to a heap-based buffer overflow, which
        allows an attacker (who can trick a user into mounting a crafted
        ISO 9660 file system) to cause a denial of service (crash), or,
        potentially, execute arbitrary code.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
    in version 20070708-3+deb7u1.
    
    The stable distribution (jessie) does not contain fuseiso packages.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 20070708-3.2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your fuseiso packages.
