- More information:
It was discovered that Flatpak, an application deployment framework for desktop apps, insufficiently restricted the execution of
apply_extrascripts which could potentially result in privilege escalation.
For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 0.8.9-0+deb9u2.
We recommend that you upgrade your flatpak packages.
