    Package        : bitlbee
    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-10188 CVE-2016-10189
    
    It was discovered that bitlbee, an IRC to other chat networks gateway,
    contained issues that allowed a remote attacker to cause a denial of
    service (via application crash), or potentially execute arbitrary
    commands.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.2.2-2+deb8u1.
    
    For the upcoming stable (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions,
    these problems have been fixed in version 3.5-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bitlbee packages.
