    CVE ID         : CVE-2017-1000026
    Debian Bug     : 868572
    
    It was discovered that ruby-mixlib-archive, a Chef Software's library
    used to handle various archive formats, was vulnerable to a directory
    traversal attack. This allowed attackers to overwrite arbitrary files
    by using a malicious tar archive containing ".." in its entries.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.2.0-1+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ruby-mixlib-archive packages.
