The json-c shared library had an integer overflow and out-of-bounds write
via a large JSON file, as demonstrated by printbuf_memappend.
This follow-up version now uses an upstream sanctioned patch that was
specifically published for json-c 0.11, rather than a self-backported
For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
We recommend that you upgrade your json-c packages.
