    Debian Bug     : #941412
    
    A vulnerability was discovered in the cpio package.
    
    CVE-2019-14866
    
         It is possible for an attacker to create a file so when
         backed up with cpio can generate arbitrary files in the
         resulting tar archive. When the backup is restored the
         file is then created with arbitrary permissions.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    2.11+dfsg-4.1+deb8u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your cpio packages.
