- More information:
Three issues have been found in golang-1.8, a Go programming language compiler version 1.8
Using the 100-continue in HTTP headers received by a net/http/Server can lead to a data race involving the connection's buffered writer.
Certain invalid inputs to ReadUvarint or ReadVarint could cause those functions to read an unlimited number of bytes from the ByteReader argument before returning an error.
When using cgo, arbitrary code might be executed at build time.
For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 1.8.1-1+deb9u2.
We recommend that you upgrade your golang-1.8 packages.
