It was discovered that insufficient input sanitising in libevt, a library to access the Windows Event Log (EVT) format, could result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed EVT file is processed.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 20170120-1+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libevt packages.
