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
version 3.2.2-2+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libarchive packages.
