    Debian Bug     : 838248
    
    Tuomas Räsänen discovered two vulnerabilities in unADF, a tool to extract
    files from an Amiga Disk File dump (.adf):
    
    CVE-2016-1243
    
        A stack buffer overflow in the function extractTree() might allow an
        attacker, with control on the content of a ADF file, to execute
        arbitrary code with the privileges of the program execution.
    
    CVE-2016-1244
    
        The unADF extractor creates the path in the destination via a mkdir
        in a system() call. Since there was no sanitization on the input of
        the filenames, an attacker can directly inject code in the pathnames
        of archived directories in an ADF file.
     
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
    in version 0.7.11a-3+deb7u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.7.11a-3+deb8u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.7.11a-4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your unadf packages.
