A couple of vulnerabilities were found in src:cifs-utils, a Common
Internet File System utilities, and are as follows:


    In cifs-utils, a stack-based buffer overflow when parsing the
    mount.cifs ip= command-line argument could lead to local attackers
    gaining root privileges.


    cifs-utils, with verbose logging, can cause an information leak
    when a file contains = (equal sign) characters but is not a valid
    credentials file.

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

We recommend that you upgrade your cifs-utils packages.
