    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in libextractor, a library to
    extract arbitrary meta-data from files, which may lead to denial of
    service or the execution of arbitrary code if a specially crafted file
    is opened.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1:1.3-4+deb9u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libextractor packages.
