    Aleksandar Nikolic of Cisco Talos discovered a stack-based buffer
    overflow vulnerability in libsoup2.4, a HTTP library implementation in
    C. A remote attacker can take advantage of this flaw by sending a
    specially crafted HTTP request to cause an application using the
    libsoup2.4 library to crash (denial of service), or potentially execute
    arbitrary code.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed
    in version 2.48.0-1+deb8u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.56.0-2+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libsoup2.4 packages.
