    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in libsmpack, a library used to
    handle Microsoft compression formats. A remote attacker could craft
    malicious CAB, CHM or KWAJ files and use these flaws to cause a denial
    of service via application crash, or potentially execute arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.5-1+deb9u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libmspack packages.
