    Package        : json-c
    CVE ID         : CVE-2020-12762
    
    Tobias Stoeckmann discovered an integer overflow in the json-c JSON
    library, which could result in denial of service or potentially the
    execution of arbitrary code if large malformed JSON files are processed.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.12.1+ds-2+deb10u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your json-c packages.
