    Liao Xinxi discovered that jackson-databind, a Java library used to
    parse JSON and other data formats, did not properly validate user
    input before attemtping deserialization. This allowed an attacker to
    perform code execution by providing maliciously crafted input.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed
    in version 2.4.2-2+deb8u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.8.6-1+deb9u1.
