Several vulnerabilities were discovered in libextractor, a library to extract arbitrary meta-data from files, which may lead to denial of service or memory disclosure if a malformed OLE file is processed.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 1:1.3-4+deb9u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your libextractor packages.
