    Multiple security issues were discovered in the VLC media player, which
    could result in the execution of arbitrary code or denial of service if

    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.0.7-0+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your vlc packages.
