Package        : zsh
Version        : 5.3.1-4+deb9u5
CVE ID         : CVE-2021-45444

It was discovered that zsh, a powerful shell and scripting language,
did not prevent recursive prompt expansion. This would allow an
attacker to execute arbitrary commands into a user's shell, for
instance by tricking a vcs_info user into checking out a git branch
with a specially crafted name.

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

We recommend that you upgrade your zsh packages.

For the detailed security status of zsh please refer to
its security tracker page at:
