Package        : golang-1.8
Version        : 1.8.1-1+deb9u2
CVE ID         : CVE-2020-15586 CVE-2020-16845 CVE-2020-28367

Three issues have been found in golang-1.8, a Go programming language
compiler version 1.8

      Using the 100-continue in HTTP headers received by a net/http/Server
      can lead to a data race involving the connection's buffered writer.

      Certain invalid inputs to ReadUvarint or ReadVarint could cause those
      functions to read an unlimited number of bytes from the ByteReader
      argument before returning an error.

      When using cgo, arbitrary code might be executed at build time.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your golang-1.8 packages.

For the detailed security status of golang-1.8 please refer to
