    It was discovered that Flatpak, an application deployment framework for
    desktop apps, insufficiently restricted the execution of "apply_extra"
    scripts which could potentially result in privilege escalation.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8.9-0+deb9u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your flatpak packages.
