They found various overflow cases which might lead to the execution of arbitrary code. Due to special toolchain hardening in Debian, CVE-2018-19492 is not security relevant, but it is a bug and the patch was applied for the sake of completeness. Probably some downstream project does not have the same toolchain settings. For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version 4.6.6-2+deb8u1. We recommend that you upgrade your gnuplot packages. - -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- iQKTBAEBCgB9FiEEYgH7/9u94Hgi6ruWlvysDTh7WEcFAlv8afRfFIAAAAAALgAo aXNzdWVyLWZwckBub3RhdGlvbnMub3BlbnBncC5maWZ0aGhvcnNlbWFuLm5ldDYy MDFGQkZGREJCREUwNzgyMkVBQkI5Njk2RkNBQzBEMzg3QjU4NDcACgkQlvysDTh7 WEcjJA/+Jo/oianDxK2MUTUxNgsOOa/w5QTXJ66wrHYjD8fDzGBx8zkU+HRVl45z OCFF8h74DxY51I3/jMS9+QJohpFB66JZD2kwnw6noZ6Lh9BjUIfmdPhb+zEpQugC WRHXnT1ZL3wej9V03OnGuyzygZAlaNjGuNp6RFI5L1Z/F5C45DohB2LjGup6x0+F azOOHm0sGEYiiTyoXJZfRVqJDrnVXAoGjVRSoDGHGOLnNFZa91p4O7Up+jcmJOH+ 8a6AWpCqSElekQlzVvMBnVzlQIhgW4DT2ILErKjnLjnrXeGXozpHUcY3uE66ubfe ZhRL/aW9mhJLKliky0Y6bvEFPBo3TGG6saCkxhqQYV4qo56Tlo9parbMH+TBc1Rq g5h/fbnffhH6auddLv7m/aRcYbNVMOSUWFS1+EiAoTzGW3pAwS7PNUhyIRnSP8F3 VDCTYfNinDdLk36JcYzm9ORfKK91ySyQmOGjkFia0MQtv3Z4Sbzt9bx8EE9z+LM3 Nutom+d1PD/rsa3h3botHhc4mSAgfAbOxwufzkYbjD3K2maR3ba2jNTJOWdcMvHU Boj7PnlWDNF7iEEIuI7kRdwKW8Qoy/PC8OyPLgvSCQMZneGZOHVkMxDUpkMROkhj RP/7Hb1zIk9dQpGrm2/RjuJcNE/yieyHlK0NjWRxJkVUlI+8JOQ= =nvBf - -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- - --------------------------END INCLUDED TEXT-------------------- You have received this e-mail bulletin as a result of your organisation's registration with AusCERT.
