    Package        : apcupsd
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflows, format string
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CAN-2003-0098 CAN-2003-0099
    
    The controlling and management daemon apcupsd for APC's Unbreakable
    Power Supplies is vulnerable to several buffer overflows and format
    string attacks. These bugs can be exploited remotely by an attacker to gain root
    access to the machine apcupsd is running on.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.8.5-1.1.1.
    
    For the old stable distribution (potato) this problem does not seem to
    exist.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been
    fixed in version 3.8.5-1.2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your apcupsd packages immediately.
