    This package ignored the value of the Hash header, which allows an attacker to spoof it. An attacker can not only embed arbitrary Armor Headers, but also prepend arbitrary text to cleartext messages without invalidating the signatures.
    
    Package        : golang-go.crypto
    Version        : 0.0~hg190-1+deb8u2
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-11841
    
    This package ignored the value of the Hash header, which allows an
    attacker to spoof it. An attacker can not only embed arbitrary Armor
    Headers, but also prepend arbitrary text to cleartext messages
    without invalidating the signatures.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    0.0~hg190-1+deb8u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your golang-go.crypto packages.
