Package : aria2 Version : 1.18.8-1+deb8u1 CVE ID : CVE-2019-3500 Debian Bug : 918058

It was discovered that aria2 (the lightweight command-line download utility) can store passed user credentials in a log file when using the --log option. This might allow local users to obtain sensitive information by reading this file.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version 1.18.8-1+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your aria2 packages.
