Several security vulnerabilities have been discovered in edk2, firmware for
virtual machines. Integer and stack overflows and uncontrolled resource
consumption may lead to a denial-of-service or in a worst case scenario,
allow an authenticated local user to potentially enable escalation of
privilege.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version
0~20161202.7bbe0b3e-1+deb9u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your edk2 packages.
