    Package        : analog
    Vulnerability  : Buffer overflow
    Type           : Remote exploit
    Debian-specific: no
    
    The author of analog, Stephen Turner, has found a buffer overflow bug
    in all versions of analog except of version 4.16.  A malicious user
    could use an ALIAS command to construct very long strings which were
    not checked for length and boundaries.  This bug is particularly
    dangerous if the form interface (which allows unknown users to run the
    program via a CGI script) has been installed.  There doesn't seem to
    be a known exploit.
    
    The bugfix has been backported to the version of analog from Debian
    2.2.  Version 4.01-1potato1 is fixed.
    
    We recommend you upgrade your analog packages immediately.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
