I believe this was fixed upstream in 1.2.0


If that's indeed the case, we should lower the severity as if this bug
doesn't apply to 1.2.3+dfsg.1-1 it shouldn't prevent its inclusion in

Upgrading from which version?  1.1.5+dfsg.1-1~bpo8+2 differs from
1.1.5+dfsg.1-1~bpo8+1 (the previous version found in jessie-backports)
only by the fix to CVE-2016-9920.

This line is only run when the function ‘utf8_encode’ doesn't exist, but
oddly enough it seems to belong to core.  Does the following command
outputs anything on your machine?

    php -r 'if (!function_exists("utf8_encode")) { die("no such function\n"); }'
