Description

Felix Wilhelm discovered that the Evince document viewer made insecure use of tar when opening tar comic book archives (CBT). Opening a malicious CBT archive could result in the execution of arbitrary code. This update disables the CBT format entirely.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 3.14.1-2+deb8u2.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 3.22.1-3+deb9u1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 3.22.1-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your evince packages.
