    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-0493
    
    Santosh Ananthakrishnan discovered a use-after-free in remctl, a server
    for Kerberos-authenticated command execution. If the command is
    configured with the sudo option, this could potentially result in the
    execution of arbitrary code.
    
    The oldstable distribution (jessie) is not affected.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.13-1+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your remctl packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of remctl please refer to
