    Package        : snapd
    Version        : 2.21-2+deb9u1
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-11840
    
    golang-go.crypto was recently updated with a fix for CVE-2019-11840. This in
    turn requires all packages that use the affected code to be recompiled in order
    to pick up the security fix.
    
    CVE-2019-11840
    
        An issue was discovered in supplementary Go cryptography libraries, aka
        golang-googlecode-go-crypto. If more than 256 GiB of keystream is
        generated, or if the counter otherwise grows greater than 32 bits, the amd64
        implementation will first generate incorrect output, and then cycle back to
        previously generated keystream. Repeated keystream bytes can lead to loss of
        confidentiality in encryption applications, or to predictability in CSPRNG
        applications.
    
    For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version
    2.21-2+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your snapd packages.
