Package        : squashfs-tools
Version        : 1:4.3-3+deb9u3
CVE ID         : CVE-2021-41072

Richard Weinberger reported that unsquashfs in squashfs-tools, the tools 
to create and extract Squashfs filesystems, does not check for duplicate 
filenames within a directory. An attacker can take advantage of this flaw 
for writing to arbitrary files to the filesystem if a malformed Squashfs 
image is processed.

For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version 

We recommend that you upgrade your squashfs-tools packages.
