Package        : shadowsocks-libev
CVE ID         : CVE-2017-15924

Niklas Abel discovered that insufficient input sanitising in the the
ss-manager component of shadowsocks-libev, a lightweight socks5 proxy,
could result in arbitrary shell command execution.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.6.3+ds-3+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your shadowsocks-libev packages.
