    Version        : 1.6.2-1+deb9u2

    The json-jwt gem before 1.11.0 for Ruby lacks an element
    count during the splitting of a JWE string.
    
    Therefore, there was a need to explicitly specify the number
    of elements when splitting a JWE string.
    
    For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version
    1.6.2-1+deb9u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ruby-json-jwt packages.
