It was discovered that there were multiple double free vulnerabilities in python-psutil, a Python module providing convenience functions for accessing system process data.

Package        : python-psutil
Version        : 2.1.1-1+deb8u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2019-18874
Debian Bug     : #944605

It was discovered that there were multiple double free
vulnerabilities in python-psutil, a Python module providing
convenience functions for accessing system process data.

This was caused by incorrect reference counting handling within
for/while loops that convert system data into said Python objects.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this issue has been fixed in python-psutil
version 2.1.1-1+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your python-psutil packages.
