    Package        : smb4k
    CVE ID         : CVE-2017-8849
    
    Sebastian Krahmer discovered that a programming error in the mount
    helper binary of the Smb4k Samba network share browser may result in
    local privilege escalation.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed
    in version 1.2.1-2~deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your smb4k packages.
