ELA-731-1 sysstat security update

Package : sysstat

Version : 11.0.1-1+deb8u1 (jessie), 11.4.3-2+deb9u1 (stretch)

On 32 bit systems, allocate_structures contains a size_t overflow in sa_common.c. The allocate_structures function insufficiently checks bounds before arithmetic multiplication, allowing for an overflow in the size allocated for the buffer representing system activities. This issue may lead to Remote Code Execution (RCE).
