    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-1160
    Debian Bug     : 916930
    
    Jacob Baines discovered a flaw in the handling of the DSI Opensession
    command in Netatalk, an implementation of the AppleTalk Protocol Suite,
    allowing an unauthenticated user to execute arbitrary code with root
    privileges.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.2.5-2+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your netatalk packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of netatalk please refer to its
    security tracker page at:
