    Debian Bug     : 824160
    
    Marcin 'Icewall' Noga of Cisco Talos discovered an out-of-bound read
    vulnerability in the CInArchive::ReadFileItem method in p7zip, a 7zr
    file archiver with high compression ratio. A remote attacker can take
    advantage of this flaw to cause a denial-of-service or, potentially the
    execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
    p7zip, if a specially crafted UDF file is processed.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 9.20.1~dfsg.1-4.1+deb8u2.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
    in version 15.14.1+dfsg-2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 15.14.1+dfsg-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your p7zip packages.
