More information:

Two issues have been found in cups, the Common UNIX Printing System(tm).

Basically both CVEs (CVE-2019-8675 and CVE-2019-8696) are about stack-buffer-overflow in two functions of libcup. One happens in asn1_get_type() the other one in asn1_get_packed().

For Debian 8 Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 1.7.5-11+deb8u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your cups packages.
