    Several issues were discovered in Mercurial, a distributed revision
    control system.
    
    CVE-2017-9462 (fixed in stretch only)
    
      Jonathan Claudius of Mozilla discovered that repositories served
      over stdio could be tricked into granting authorized users access to
      the Python debugger.
    
    CVE-2017-1000115
    
      Mercurial's symlink auditing was incomplete, and could be abused to
      write files outside the repository.
    
    CVE-2017-1000116
    
      Joern Schneeweisz discovered that Mercurial did not correctly handle
      maliciously constructed ssh:// URLs. This allowed an attacker to run
      an arbitrary shell command.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed
    in version 3.1.2-2+deb8u4.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.0-1+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mercurial packages.
