    Package        : varnish
    CVE ID         : CVE-2017-8807
    Debian Bug     : 881808
    
    'shamger' and Carlo Cannas discovered that a programming error in
    Varnish, a state of the art, high-performance web accelerator, may
    result in disclosure of memory contents or denial of service.
    
    See https://varnish-cache.org/security/VSV00002.html for details.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.0.0-7+deb9u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your varnish packages.
