    Package        : libarchive
    Version        : 3.1.2-11+deb8u8
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-18408
    
    
    An issue has been found in libarchive, a multi-format archive and 
    compression library.
    
    In case of a crafted archive containing several parts and one part being 
    corrupt, there would be an use-after-free for the next part of the 
    archive.
    
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    3.1.2-11+deb8u8.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libarchive packages.
