    Package        : mbedtls
    CVE ID         : CVE-2017-18187 CVE-2018-0487 CVE-2018-0488

    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in mbed TLS, a lightweight
    crypto and SSL/TLS library, that allowed a remote attacker to either
    cause a denial-of-service by application crash, or execute arbitrary
    code.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.4.2-1+deb9u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mbedtls packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of mbedtls please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
