The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201701-40
(xdelta: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
A buffer overflow can be triggered within xdelta when ran against a
malicious input file.
A remote attacker could coerce the victim to run xdelta against a
malicious input file. This may be leveraged by an attacker to crash
xdelta and gain control of program execution.
There is no known workaround at this time.
