The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


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.


Upgrade the blender packages.

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