Package : patch Version : 2.7.5-1+deb8u3 CVE ID : CVE-2019-13638

An issue with quoting has been found in patch, a tool to apply a diff file to an original, when invoking ed. In order to avoid this, ed is now directly started instead of calling a shell which starts ed.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version 2.7.5-1+deb8u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your patch packages.
