CVE ID         : CVE-2017-9300 CVE-2017-10699

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
