    Package        : golang-1.7
    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-7187 CVE-2019-6486
    
    A vulnerability was discovered in the implementation of the P-521 and
    P-384 elliptic curves, which could result in denial of service and in
    some cases key recovery.
    
    In addition this update fixes a vulnerability in "go get", which could
    result in the execution of arbitrary shell commands.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.7.4-2+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your golang-1.7 packages.
