Debian Bug     : 867717

A heap-based buffer underflow flaw was discovered in catdoc, a text
extractor for MS-Office files, which may lead to denial of service
(application crash) or have unspecified other impact, if a specially
crafted file is processed.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed
in version 0.94.4-1.1+deb8u1.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:0.94.3~git20160113.dbc9ec6+dfsg-1+deb9u1.

For the testing distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed
in version 1:0.95-3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:0.95-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your catdoc packages.
