Shibboleth upstream confirmed that it's basically more of the same
issue: https://alioth-lists.debian.net/pipermail/pkg-shibboleth-devel/2018-November/005382.html
"I would suggest you just attach this to the same CVE as before and
update it to reflect the versions involved."

Dear Security Team, please consider yourselves notified and please
advise how we should track/handle this.  I'm looking into backporting
the fix to the stable version 1.7.3-4+deb9u1.
