    Marcin Noga discovered multiple vulnerabilities in readxl, a GNU R
    package to read Excel files (via the integrated libxls library), which
    could result in the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed
    spreadsheet is processed.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.1.1-1+deb9u1.
