    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in libarchive, a multi-format
    archive and compression library, which may lead to denial of service
    (memory consumption and application crash), bypass of sandboxing
    restrictions and overwrite arbitrary files with arbitrary data from an
    archive, or the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.1.2-11+deb8u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libarchive packages.
