Several security vulnerabilities were fixed in opensc, a set of
libraries and utilities to access smart cards that support
cryptographic operations.

Out-of-bounds reads, buffer overflows and double frees could be used
by attackers able to supply crafted smart cards to cause a denial of
service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version
0.16.0-3+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your opensc packages.
