    It was discovered that there was a code injection issue in PyXDG, a library used to locate "FreeDesktop.org" configuration/cache/etc. directories.
    
    Package        : pyxdg
    Version        : 0.25-4+deb8u1
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-12761
    Debian Bug     : #930099
    
    It was discovered that there was a code injection issue in PyXDG, a
    library used to locate "FreeDesktop.org" configuration/cache/etc.
    directories.
    
    A lack of sanitisation allowed arbitrary Python code embedded in
    the Category element of a Menu XML document in a .menu file to
    be executed.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this issue has been fixed in pyxdg version
    0.25-4+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your pyxdg packages.
