    The code in src/sftpserver.c did not verify the validity of certain pointers and expected them to be valid. A NULL pointer dereference could have been occurred that typically causes a crash and thus a denial-of-service.

    CVE ID         : CVE-2020-16135
    
    The code in src/sftpserver.c did not verify the validity of certain
    pointers and expected them to be valid. A NULL pointer dereference could
    have been occurred that typically causes a crash and thus a
    denial-of-service.
    
    For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version
    0.7.3-2+deb9u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libssh packages.
