A buffer overflow was discovered in HTMLDOC, a HTML processor that generates indexed HTML, PS, and PDF, which could potentially result in the execution of arbitrary code. In addition a number of crashes were addressed.

For Debian 8 jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 1.8.27-8+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your htmldoc packages.
