    Several security vulnerabilities were discovered in OpenAFS, a
    distributed file system.
    
    CVE-2019-18601
    
        OpenAFS is prone to denial of service from unserialized data access
        because remote attackers can make a series of VOTE_Debug RPC calls
        to crash a database server within the SVOTE_Debug RPC handler.
    
    CVE-2019-18602
    
        OpenAFS is prone to an information disclosure vulnerability because
        uninitialized scalars are sent over the network to a peer.
    
    CVE-2019-18603
    
        OpenAFS is prone to information leakage upon certain error
        conditions because uninitialized RPC output variables are sent over
        the network to a peer.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version
    1.6.9-2+deb8u9.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openafs packages.
