Man Yue Mo, Lars Krapf and Pierre Ernst discovered that Batik, a toolkit for processing SVG images, did not properly validate its input. This would allow an attacker to cause a denial-of-service, mount cross-site scripting attacks, or access restricted files on the server.
For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 1.7+dfsg-5+deb8u1.
For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 1.8-4+deb9u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your batik packages.
