apr-util, Apache Portable Runtime Utility Library, had multiple vulnerabilities.


apr-util fails to validate the integrity of SDBM database files
used by apr_sdbm*() functions, resulting in a possible out of
bound read access. A local user with write access to the database
can make a program or process using these functions crash, and
cause a denial of service.


Integer Overflow or Wraparound vulnerability in apr_base64
functions of apr-util allows an attacker to write beyond bounds
of a buffer.

For Debian 8 jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 1.5.4-1+deb8u1.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 1.5.4-3+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your apr-util packages.
