    The Qualys Research Labs discovered a heap-based buffer overflow
    vulnerability in sudo, a program designed to provide limited super user
    privileges to specific users. Any local user (sudoers and non-sudoers)
    can exploit this flaw for root privilege escalation.
    
    For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version
    1.8.19p1-2.1+deb9u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your sudo packages.
