    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.
