Original Bulletin: 
   https://lists.debian.org/debian-lts-announce/2018/12/msg00008.html

Comment: This advisory references vulnerabilities in products which run on 
         platforms other than Debian. It is recommended that administrators 
         running sleuthkit check for an updated version of the software for 
         their operating system.

- --------------------------BEGIN INCLUDED TEXT--------------------

Package        : sleuthkit
Version        : 4.1.3-4+deb8u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-19497
Debian Bug     : 914796

It was discovered that the Sleuth Kit (TSK) through version 4.6.4 is
affected by a buffer over-read vulnerability. The tsk_getu16 call in
hfs_dir_open_meta_cb (tsk/fs/hfs_dent.c) does not properly check
boundaries. This vulnerability might be leveraged by remote attackers
using crafted filesystem images to cause denial of service or any other
unspecified behavior.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
4.1.3-4+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your sleuthkit packages.
