    Debian Bug     : 901912
    
    Several heap buffer overflows were found in discount, an implementation
    of the Markdown markup language, that could be triggered witth specially
    crafted Markdown data and would cause discount to read past the end of
    internal buffers.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.2.2-1+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your discount packages.
