    Fariskhi Vidyan discovered that the PEAR Archive_Tar package for
    handling tar files in PHP is prone to a PHP object injection
    vulnerability, potentially allowing a remote attacker to execute
    arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:1.10.1+submodules+notgz-9+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your php-pear packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of php-pear please refer to its
    security tracker page at:
