    Multiple security issues were found in libarchive, a multi-format archive
    and compression library: Processing malformed RAR archives could result
    in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code and malformed
    WARC, LHarc, ISO, Xar or CAB archives could result in denial of service.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
