The Apache Xalan Java XSLT library is vulnerable to an integer truncation issue
when processing malicious XSLT stylesheets. This can be used to corrupt Java
class files generated by the internal XSLTC compiler and execute arbitrary Java
bytecode. In Debian the vulnerable code is in the bcel source package.

For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your bcel packages.
