    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-18397
    Debian Bug     : 944327
    
    Alex Murray discovered a stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability in
    fribidi, an implementation of the Unicode Bidirectional Algorithm
    algorithm, which could result in denial of service or potentially the
    execution of arbitrary code, when processing a large number of unicode
    isolate directional characters.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.5-3.1+deb10u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your fribidi packages.
