A vulnerability was discovered in the implementation of the P-521 and P-384 elliptic curves, which could result in denial of service and in some cases key recovery.

In addition this update fixes a vulnerability in "go get", which could result in the execution of arbitrary shell commands.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 1.7.4-2+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your golang-1.7 packages.

For the detailed security status of golang-1.7 please refer to its security tracker page at: https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/golang-1.7
