[SECURITY] [DLA 1981-1] cpio security update

Package        : cpio
Version        : 2.11+dfsg-4.1+deb8u2
CVE ID         : CVE-2019-14866
Debian Bug     : #941412

A vulnerability was discovered in the cpio package.


     It is possible for an attacker to create a file so when
     backed up with cpio can generate arbitrary files in the
     resulting tar archive. When the backup is restored the
     file is then created with arbitrary permissions.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your cpio packages.
