Comment: This advisory references vulnerabilities in products which run on

         running aria2 check for an updated version of the software for their
         operating system.

Package        : aria2
Version        : 1.18.8-1+deb8u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2019-3500
Debian Bug     : 918058

It was discovered that aria2 (the lightweight command-line download
utility) can store passed user credentials in a log file when using
the --log option. This might allow local users to obtain sensitive
information by reading this file.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
1.18.8-1+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your aria2 packages.
