Multiple security issues were found in the rdesktop RDP client, which
could result in denial of service, information disclosure and the
execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.8.4-1~deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your rdesktop packages.
