More information:

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in various parsers of Blender, a 3D modeller/ renderer. Malformed .blend model files and malformed multimedia files (AVI, BMP, HDR, CIN, IRIS, PNG, TIFF) may result in the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 2.79.b+dfsg0-1~deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your blender packages.
