    Package        : tor
    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-0490
    
    It has been discovered that Tor, a connection-based low-latency
    anonymous communication system, contains a protocol-list handling bug
    that could be used to remotely crash directory authorities with a
    null-pointer exception (TROVE-2018-001).
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.2.9.15-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tor packages.
