    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.
