    It was discovered that a hook script of ldm, the display manager for the Linux Terminal Server Project incorrectly parsed responses from an SSH server which could result in local root privilege escalation.

    Version        : 2:2.2.15-2+deb8u1
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-20373
    Debian Bug     : #948538
    
    It was discovered that a hook script of ldm, the display manager
    for the Linux Terminal Server Project incorrectly parsed responses
    from an SSH server which could result in local root privilege
    escalation.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this issue has been fixed in ldm version
    2:2.2.15-2+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ldm packages.
