    Tobias Stoeckmann found an integer overflow issue in JSON-C, a C
    library to manipulate JSON objects, when reading maliciously crafted
    large files. The issue could be exploited to cause denial of service
    or possibly execute arbitrary code.
    
    For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version
    0.12.1-1.1+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your json-c packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of json-c please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
