    It was found that the fix for CVE-2018-19758 was incomplete. That
    has been addressed in this update. The description
    for CVE-2018-19758 follows:
    
        A heap-buffer-overflow vulnerability was discovered in libsndfile, the
        library for reading and writing files containing sampled sound. This flaw
        might be triggered by remote attackers to cause denial of service (out of
        bounds read and application crash).
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    1.0.25-9.1+deb8u4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libsndfile packages.
