    Two issues have been found in cups, the Common UNIX Printing System(tm).
    
    Basically both CVEs (CVE-2019-8675 and CVE-2019-8696) are about 
    stack-buffer-overflow in two functions of libcup. One happens in 
    asn1_get_type() the other one in asn1_get_packed().
    
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version
    1.7.5-11+deb8u5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your cups packages.
