    Debian Bug     : 895778
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in jruby, a Java
    implementation of the Ruby programming language. They would allow an
    attacker to use specially crafted gem files to mount cross-site
    scripting attacks, cause denial of service through an infinite loop,
    write arbitrary files, or run malicious code.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.7.26-1+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your jruby packages.
    
    In addition, this message serves as an announcement that security
    support for jruby in the Debian 8 oldstable release (jessie) is now
    discontinued.
    
    Users of jruby in Debian 8 that want security updates are strongly
    encouraged to upgrade now to the current Debian 9 stable release
    (stretch).
    
    For the detailed security status of jruby please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
    https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/jruby
