    It was discovered that there was a heap-based buffer overread
    vulnerability in expat, an XML parsing library.
    
    A specially-crafted XML input could fool the parser into changing
    from DTD parsing to document parsing too early; a consecutive call to
    XML_GetCurrentLineNumber (or XML_GetCurrentColumnNumber) then
    resulted in a heap-based buffer overread.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this issue has been fixed in expat version
    2.1.0-6+deb8u6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your expat packages.
