    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-5188
    
    
    An issue has been found in e2fsprogs, a package that contains 
    ext2/ext3/ext4 file system utilities. A specially crafted ext4 directory 
    can cause an out-of-bounds write on the stack, resulting in code 
    execution. An attacker can corrupt a partition to trigger this 
    vulnerability.
    
    
    For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version
    1.43.4-2+deb9u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your e2fsprogs packages.
