    The updated package fixes security vulnerabilities:
    
    An Integer overflow in the getElfSections function in p_vmlinx.cpp in UPX
    3.95 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a
    skewed offset larger than the size of the PE section in a UPX packed
    executable, which triggers an allocation of excessive memory.
    (CVE-2019-14295)
    
    canUnpack in p_vmlinx.cpp in UPX 3.95 allows remote attackers to cause a
    denial of service (SEGV or buffer overflow, and application crash) or
    possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted UPX packed file.
