    Debian Bug     : 944696
    
    Several issues have been found in python-apt, a python interface to libapt-pkg.
    
    CVE-2019-15795
    
        It was discovered that python-apt would still use MD5 hashes to validate
        certain downloaded packages. If a remote attacker were able to perform a
        man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw could potentially be used to install
        altered packages.
    
    CVE-2019-15796
    
        It was discovered that python-apt could install packages from untrusted
        repositories, contrary to expectations.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version
    0.9.3.13.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your python-apt packages.
