    Package        : bouncycastle
    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-1000180
    
    It was discovered that the low-level interface to the RSA key pair
    generator of Bouncy Castle (a Java implementation of cryptographic
    algorithms) could perform less Miller-Rabin primality tests than
    expected.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.56-1+deb9u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bouncycastle packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of bouncycastle please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
