Package        : gnulib
Version        : 20140202+stable-2+deb8u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-17942
Debian Bug     : 910757

Ben Pfaff discovered that the convert_to_decimal function in the GNU
Portability Library contains a heap-based buffer overflow because memory
is not allocated for a trailing '\0' character during %f processing.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
20140202+stable-2+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your gnulib packages.
