More information:

Several heap buffer overflows were found in discount, an implementation of the Markdown markup language, that could be triggered with specially crafted Markdown data and would cause discount to read past the end of internal buffers.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 2.2.2-1+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your discount packages.
