Package        : mat
CVE ID         : not yet available
Debian Bug     : 826101

Hartmut Goebel discovered that MAT, a toolkit to anonymise/remove
metadata from files did not remove metadata from images embededed in PDF
documents.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.5.2-3+deb8u1. This update disables PDF support in MAT
entirely.

We recommend that you upgrade your mat packages.
