    It was discovered that libsmpack, a library used to handle Microsoft
    compression formats, did not properly validate its input. A remote
    attacker could craft malicious CAB or CHM files and use this flaw to
    cause a denial of service via application crash, or potentially
    execute arbitrary code.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed
    in version 0.5-1+deb8u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.5-1+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libmspack packages.
