Description

Several vulnerabilities have been found in VLC, the VideoLAN project's media player. Processing malformed media files could lead to denial of service and potentially the execution of arbitrary code.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 2.2.7-1~deb8u1.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 2.2.7-1~deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your vlc packages.
