Stephen Roettger discovered a race condition in tmpreaper, a program that cleans up files in directories based on their age, which could result in local privilege escalation.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 1.6.13+nmu1+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your tmpreaper packages.
